ERCLA Additional Programs
ERCLA contributes to programs that align with our efforts for lake management and the eradication of Aquatic Invasive Species.
Many volunteers provide time, efforts and funding for these programs that are important to our efforts to properly maintain the Eagle River Chain of Lakes.
ERCLA believes in helping high school students achieve their dream of a college education and offers a $1,000 annual scholarship each spring.
One of the requirements to be eligible for the ERCLA scholarship is applying students must be going into an environmental program. Details are provided to Northland Pines High School each year, and students are notified when a winner is selected.
There are more than 100 marked buoys placed on the Eagle River Chain of Lakes each year. The Town of Cloverland, the Town of Washington, the Town of Lincoln, and the City of Eagle River all provide the majority of the funding necessary for this program. ERCLA also assists with funding for the maintenance and replacement of the buoys.
Boat Landing Signs
Recognizing that navigating the Eagle River Chain can be challenging to visitors, ERCLA has placed helpful 4' x 8' foot signs at the Catfish, Yellow Birch, and Eagle Lake public boat landings, and at the Chain O'Lakes Campground boat landing on Cranberry Lake.
These signs have a complete map, courtesy of Vilas County Mapping Department, including boat landings, marinas, restaurants, picnic areas, boat rentals, swimming areas and campgrounds.
