Picnic Island Restoration Begins July 29

On Monday July 29 SCLA volunteers and contractor, Nile of Chequamagon Environmental will work to restore the shoreland of Picnic Island on Big Spider by installing two erosion control practices: diversion and rock infiltration. 


Native plants (the final element of the restoration) will be planted in the fall 2024.  SCLA will notify members in the "What's New" member section of the website: (Membership>For Members>What's New) and by email when a date is set for planting.


Feel free to boat or kayak to Picnic Island between 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM on Monday, July 29 to watch the installation in progress.

PICNIC ISLAND RESTORATION: A LIVING LAB OF SHORELAND BEST PRACTICES

SCLA volunteers are excited to restore Picnic Island (Big Spider) after storm damage over the past decade. We will implement 3 of the 5 best practices recommended by Wisconsin Healthy Lakes. Using the island as a live laboratory, you’ll have a chance to learn more about the best practices and summer plans to contain erosion on our beloved Picnic Island.
