Commissioner John Bear collected seeds from the four species of beneficial shoreline vegetation shown above.  The seeds were mixed with sand and dirt as shown below.  The seeding mixture we then disbursed along the lake shoreline by Chairman Bill Roesler and Commissioner John Bear to encourage the proliferation of these beneficial emerging macrophytes.  We hope to see the new plants emerging next spring.  [October 22, 2004]
