The purpose of the BLCA shall be to promote the care, improvement and general welfare of the Briggs Lake Chain (Big Elk, Julia, Rush, Briggs) and adjoining and connecting waters, and any other matters affected by or related to our purpose.

Note:  Upper 3 lake LID money not available until 2nd half of 2017. So Donations to AIS will cover spring treatments and any overages will go toward rapid response funds should a new invasive need a response before vote required at the annual LID meeting. 

Big ELK fish stocking is not currently available.  

Two AIS studies planned by the LID on upper lakes are delineation studies to learn the current state of vegetation and milfoil / curly leaf surveys. The plan is to replicate the studies on an as needed basis for ELK and Lily creek as recommended by the experts. So there is a category to donate for Big Elk studies as well. The BLCA has committed to funding the surveys in 2017. The hope is the EWM will not take in the creek or ELK due to fast water movement but we need to keep watching it.

Briggs Lake Chain Association Stewardship In Your Backyard 

Taking care of the state’s natural resources, which face increasing pressures  and demands from a growing  population, is a task that requires everyone  to lend a hand at whatever level they can.  One of the best places to begin is right where you live.  Whether it’s a narrow urban lot, a 40-acre woodland, or having a view of a  beautiful lake, your “backyard” is an important part of a larger natural community or ecosystem (MN DNR).  By making the step to  join your Briggs Lake Chain Association or to inform yourself of the  efforts being done in your lake community, property owners can do their  part to assure healthier habitat and cleaner lakes and rivers.  Check out some of the information in our website.

Our natural heritage can continue to reward us in the future if homeowners  like you are willing to work together at improving the health of their  neighborhoods and lake systems.
