Nurturing Deer Lake
For a good number of years the Deer Lake Conservancy, in conjunction with the Deer Lake Improvement Association, has worked toward the preservation of Deer Lake and the surrounding land that contributes to the natural, scenic, recreational and productive value of the lake. Many individual projects have been undertaken in an effort to help achieve this goal.
What we have tried to do is identify a key parcel in each of the largest watersheds draining into the lake that will allow us to control phosphorous and other pollutants which would otherwise flow unchecked into the lake. What we have is unique among lakes in Wisconsin. Our efforts have secured the ability to protect this lake for future generations.
