CLA Receives State Grant

The Caribou Lake Association has received a substantial grant from the State of Minnesota to fund boat inspections at both the Birch Point and Industrial Road Public Launches.  The purpose of these inspections will be to assist boaters in compliance with state invasive species control regulations.  Boats will be inspected before launch and after they have again been pulled out.  Your cooperation with the inspection program is most appreciated and will go a long way to help prevent the spread of destructive plants and animal material to and from other lakes.  For more information, please contact us at ‘Our Association/Contact Us’ on the home page.
