Plans for harvest of aquatic weeds in Vilas Lagoon

Dane County Parks will be doing their last harvest in the Vilas Lagoon starting the week of Sept. 29, or the following week.  The harvesting will be to vegetation in preparation for the winter recreation season.

In the past, the Friends of Lake Wingra raised questions about the severe disturbance of the bottom caused by weed cutting machines.

The response has been that weed cutting is necessary to make the ice suitable for skating, and that skating has priority because of it's long tradition at the park.
