Check Your Docks and Lifts for AIS This Fall

Early detection of new aquatic invasive species (AIS) infestations is a team effort. The key to our success at Lake Vermilion is property owners, lake visitors, volunteer access sentries, and trained AIS Detectors all working together.

Fall is an important time for property owners to be extra vigilant. As you bring in your docks and boat lifts for the winter, check them carefully. Please report any suspicious aquatic vegetation or invertebrates which you do not recognize as native to Lake Vermilion to our AIS hotline by either email or phone at:

(218) 288-1080

A member of our AIS Detector team – listed below – will get back to you promptly.
