Lake Inspectors play a critical role in our efforts to prevent the spread of invasive aquatic plants, especially Eurasian Water Milfoil, to our lakes. Lake Inspectors are assigned a segment of the Canada Lakes that they inspect each August. They are provided with manuals and taken on a field trip to Caroga Lake to view Eurasian Water Milfoil growing. The linked page identifies the inspectors and the territories they cover. If you encounter a plant that you think might be an invasive species, you are encouraged to contact the inspector responsible for that particular area.
