Fundraising Banquet

Monday, April 17

Bayside Supper Club

Doors Open at 5:15 p.m.

Join us for the 27th Annual BDLIA Fundraising Banquet!  There will be a great dinner and a silent auction, live auction, raffles, door prizes, and more.

The funds raised at the BDLIA Fundraising Banquet will go toward fish restocking, annual events on the lake such as The Great Beaver Paddle Festival, Cardboard Boat Regatta, pontoon boat rides, and Kids Fish N Fun.  BDLIA's goal is to improve water quality, the fishery, and wildlife habitat. The funds raised go specifically to the Beaver Dam Lake and not to a national chapter or organization.  

Throughout the weeks leading up to the banquet, check out our Facebook page to see the individuals and businesses who have donated and some of the great prizes you can win!

We hope to see you there!

The Wisconsin Lakes & Rivers Convention is back again for 2023, this year April 19-21. The gathering of over 500 lake and stream lovers – from private citizens to government and state agency officials to academics – will convene at the Stevens Point Holiday Inn & Convention Center for three jam-packed days of workshops, field trips, engaging talks, thought-provoking discussion, networking, and fun.

During this event, we invite you to build new relationships with individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations. Let’s cultivate trust together so we can better collaborate and cooperate around the lakes, in our watersheds, and across Wisconsin.

Check out the agenda and more at the Convention website.

Online Native Plant Guide

Extension Lakes team member Patrick Goggin has compiled an online native plant guide that includes a plant profile for 112 native trees, shrubs, grasses, and wildflowers!

Native plantings include grasses and wildflowers with shrubs and tress.

You can view this Guide to Native Plants (a.k.a. Local Beings): 112 species that support clean water, wildlife habitat, and a happy soul on the Healthy Lakes & Rivers website, where you will find additional resources to improve your shoreland property.
