Keeping Lone Lake Clear
Aquatic invasive species
In 2018 the Lone Lake board and a survey of members, decided to partner with Aitkin County DNR. Aitkin County will be providing AIS inspectors every weekend during the summer. Watercraft are inspected entering and exiting the lake. We all want to keep the lake clean! What risks face Aitkin County lakes? Download the full report here.
