  • Work with leading lake scientists to conduct research toward the best possible restoration and management solutions;
  • Operate four in-lake restoration systems which restore the natural balance of the lake's ecosystem by improving the habitat for cold water fish and beneficial zooplankton;
  • Prevent invasive aquatic species from entering or gaining a foothold in the lake, under a comprehensive inspection, monitoring, education and emergency-response program;
  • Work with other lake groups, local officials, land use boards and local, regional and state organizations to promote policies and initiatives to protect and benefit water quality;
  • Support land preservation, including the protection of open space, shoreline vegetation and wise land use on the lakefront and in the watershed; and
  • Educate land owners, businesses, recreational users and the general public on lake restoration issues and Task Force programs.
