Tomahawk Lake needs volunteers
The TLA is an organization run by volunteers. And we need more help!
There are a number of volunteer opportunities:
- Lake Sentinel
Each year volunteer teams of 2 are needed to perform Lake Surveys. There are 17 teams, each assigned a specific area of the lake. Twice each summer they survey the shoreline for evidence of EWM, marking spots using a handheld GPS device. Each survey takes approximately 1 hour of time.
- Clean Boats Clean Waters Ramp Attendants
Volunteers are needed for weekday monitoring or the two main boat ramps. Attendants engage with boat owners making sure they understand how to inspect their boats, remove any EWM and make sure that livewells are emptied. Most invasive species are introduced into a lake through careless boat owners who fail to inspect and clean their boats prior to launching in a new lake.
- Hermit Island Swim Challenge
Each year we need 12 pontoon boats to line the course and provide emergency assistance, should it be needed.
- TLA Board of Directors
We are always looking for interested folks who share a passion for the lake to serve as board members.
