Indian Lake Watershed Association Update 5/6/2016

REMINDER!!!!
Spring Cleanup Saturday, May 7th 9am to Noon (TOMORROW!)
 
Our spring cleanup will take place on Saturday, May 7th from 9am to noon. We will meet at Morgan Park at 9am and disperse to locations around the lake including: Shore Park, Indian Lake Beach, Hapgood Brooks Memorial, Frostholm Memorial and Norton Drive.
  
Please bring gloves and labeled wheelbarrows if possible!

TIME IS RUNNING SHORT... WE NEED YOUR HELP!
 
Our fundraising goal for this spring is $30,000. This will cover the cost of the Alum treatment to temporarily reduce lake nutrients that are contributing to algae issues and educational materials focused on reducing nutrients entering the lake. Funds must be in place by early May in order to schedule the treatment. 
 
We have $15,805 left to raise and we need your help!  
 
We are seeking grants, donations from individuals and businesses. No amount is too small! The ILWA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and therefore your donation is tax deductible!

Our mailing address is: ILWA, PO Box 60244, Worcester, MA 01606.   

Got Geese?
 
Many residents have been concerned about the geese at Indian Lake. The City of Worcester will continue it's Egg Addling Program this year and is in need of volunteers.
 
Additional geese management techniques will be used by the City in the public spaces surrounding the lake.
