The recent September heat wave has passed and the cool weather reminds us that the change of seasons is upon us. With that in mind, the newly formed Lincoln County Drift Clippers snowmobile club would like to welcome you to join them for the coming year. Club member Rick Peterson of Lake Benton said the club is already active and will be working on a trail system. "We're getting $18,000 from the Minnesota DNR," said Peterson. "We are working on set- ting up a trail system that will con- nect all the towns in the county." Peterson said the club has already purchased a groomer and a total of 82 miles of trails will be marked and groomed. The trail will hook up with a South Dakota trail sys- tem near Hendricks, and Peterson said they hope to soon be hooking up to trails in Lyon and Pipestone counties. The next meeting for the club is Tuesday, September 24th at 7:30 PM at Marty's in Tyler. The meet- ing place rotates from month-to- month to different towns and spon- sors. Everyone is welcome to at- tend. Membership in the club is $25 per person, or $40 per family. Peterson said the club is also look- ing for sponsors. Sponsorships can be purchased at three different lev- els. Bronze ($100) will entitle the sponsor to free membership and an Two Speakers Tell Of Research At Third Curly Leaf Pond Weed Meeting by Larry Hansen Monday evening, Sept. 9, the third meeting relating to the prob- lem of the Curly Leaf Pond Weed in Lake Benton Lake was held at the Community Center in Lake Benton. Approximately 50 people in attendance had the opportunity to hear two speakers tell of re- search that has been done to con- trol the Curly Leaf Pond Weed not only in Minnesota but also in other states that have the same problem as exists in Lake Benton Lake. With the help of Jim Doering, administrator of RCRCA (Redwood Cottonwood River Control Area) and the funding provided by that agency, the experiences and re- search study was made available to the people that attended. The two speakers were John Madsen and Wendy Croweil. Both gave power point presentations on their re- search and studies and answered numerous questions. John Madsen is an assistant professor in the Department of Bio- logical Sciences at Mankato State University and is a post editor of the Journal of Aquatic Plant Man- agement. Wendy Crowell is an aquatic biologist with the Minne- sota Department of Natural Re- sources (MnDNR) Exotic Species Program. John Madsen has worked in eastern and southern states in addition to Minnesota. Wendy' Crowell has spent the past eight years working for MnDNR man- aging various aquatic species con- trol efforts and helping to formu- late policy for Minnesota to deal with exotic species. Professor Madsen spoke about research done in management and control of the weed and the vari- ous herbicides available to be used as well as the use of weed harvest- ing machinery and the cos(s, ben- efits and effects of all. Wendy Crowell spoke mostly on the per- mitring process by MnDNR to use chemicals and the size of area that she has worked with in the re- search on control of aquatic spe- cies of weeds and particularly the Curly Leaf Pond Weed. Several things were learned. One thing is that any treatment for control and management will be expensive. The other is that one treatment will not eradicale the Curly Leaf Pond Weed, but vith management you can use herbi- cides to control the weed and not destroy the fish population. The Curly Leaf Pond Weed seems to do well in the more shallow lakes because the plants get the light nec- essary to grow which with deeper water they do not have that light necessary for growth. Presently there are seven or eight herbicides that can be used to control aquatic weeds. Two of the herbicides that seem to be ef- fective are Endothall and Floridone. Because of the length of time that Floridone remains effective and other factors considered, it may be the preferred herbicide to treat Lake Benton Lake. It was stated that much of the research has been done on lakes smaller than Lake Benton or in smaller test areas. The question was asked if a permit to treat the entire lake would be considered by the MnDNR and the answer was that you can ask but that has not been done previously on that large of area. Another question asked was why should it cost so much more to treat an acre of a lake than to spray an acre of farm land. The answer by Professor Madsen was that the cost of research and de- velopment enters into each herbi- cide and that the volume of sales for agricultural chemicals is much greater than for those to treat in water so the cost is going to be greater when working with con- trol of weeds in lakes versus farm land. Much was learned from the meeting regarding control of the Curl.y Leaf Pond Weed. Now it will require some study by a group of volunteers to analyze the informa- tion presented and consider what the best method of control would be. The resources and assistance of Jim Doering and RCRCA will orttinue to be available. There is considerable work and study to be done before any decision is made to adopt a plan of action.
