Welcome to Little Elk Lake, located in Sherburne County MN, approximately 45 miles northwest of Minneapolis, St Paul, MN.
A new approach to invasive lake weeds has become available to Little Elk Lake through a DNR grant program. The new DNR grant program provides an economic incentive for LELIA to now treat off shore waters that will jointly benefit everyone who enjoys our lake. The strategy plan for LELIA is to utilize DNR grants and treat acres of nuisance weed beds this season and for years to come to manage non-native weeds.
Now back to the solution to lake weeds? – which is you.
Everyone who lives on Little Elk Lake or enjoys our community resource is requested to make an annual donation to allow us the funds to combat nuisance weeds. 100% of your donation will be used towards the treatment of these weeds. An operating annual budget of $2,500 - $5,000 will allow us to continue our pursuit to improve Little Elk Lake with a suggested donation of $25 -$100 annually by shoreline owners and community members. Donation form available here.
Sherburne Soil & Water Conservation District has announced funds are available for shoreline buffer and stormwater reduction projects for 2013. Click here for more information.
