Maybe The Happy Circumstance can help remind people that we need to
keep things like VHS, Eurasian watermillfoil and the rusty crayfish out of Lake
Leota as long as possible. Things are not like they were in the 1950's. We are
dealing with very serious problems with our lakes.
Gibbs lake is a poster child for Eurasian watermillfoil and is about 7
miles from Leota as the crow flies.Everyone should go take a good look at the
millfoil problem in Gibbs lake. It only takes a small piece to introduce it to a
new body of water.
We all have a part to play in keeping the lakes clean. It can sometimes start with the things we don't do.
