There are many opportunities for you to volunteer to support Boulder Lake. Whether you have only an hour or much more, your support is valuable and appreciated. Please consider one or more of these opportunities:
CBCW – Clean Boats Clean Waters
CBCW is a volunteer program protecting Wisconsin lakes. Volunteers are essential to the efforts to educate boaters about AIS (aquatic invasive species) and how to prevent their spread. Boulder Lake will receive 100 hours of CBCW monitoring by university interns through the statewide program administered by University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. However, this covers only a few days out of the 5 to 6 months of active fishing on Boulder Lake. We are seeking volunteers to cover additional days and hours during the busy fishing season. BLAA members and other interested parties who volunteer for CBCW will receive training on how to help educate boaters who visit Boulder Lake – this is one of the single most important efforts we can take to protect Boulder Lake!
Vilas and Oneida Counties provide frequent open training sessions early in the summer (watch this site for 2019 dates). These training sessions are fun and last about 60-90 minutes.
Once you receive training, please contact Bill Niemuth at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your time at the Boulder Lake Boat Landing. All Volunteers will receive supplies, giveaways for participating boaters and report forms.
