Brock Woods of the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources will present "Invasive Species in Supple Marsh: Problems and Solutions" at 6 p.m. Monday,

Supple Marsh is the 107-acre wetland in Lakeside Park West, Fond du Lac. It was purchased from the Supple family by the City of Fond du Lac in 1967.
The public is invited to bring items related to the marsh — photos, maps, plans; historical and recent — to share at the events.
The program is sponsored by the Lake Winnebago Clean Waters Project, the Lake Winnebago Quality Improvement Association and the library.
The quality improvement association will accept donations of marsh materials for study and future use.

New Receptacles Help Fishermen Recycle Unwanted Line
Published: August 20, 2013
Chris Anderson and Matthew Dudarenke install a receptacle at Lakeside Park West.
People fishing on Lake Winnebago now have an easy way to dispose of old or unwanted fishing line. Ten fish line receptacles have been placed around the southern end of the lake in an effort to keep the lake clean and safe for wildlife and people using it.
Chris Anderson designed the receptacles from PVC pipe donated by JF Ahern as part of his Eagle Scout project. Fellow scouts from Troop 705 of North Fond du Lac helped with the construction and installation. The project was sponsored by the Lake Winnebago Quality Improvement Association.
Fishing line, or monofilament, is typically non-degradable and lasts about 600 years. Abandoned fishing line injures or kills fish, birds and other wildlife.
Collection bins are located at the following launch sites:
- Black Wolf
- Hwy 45 Wayside
- (3) at Lakeside Park West (Supple Marsh)
- (2) at Lakeside Park East
- Columbia Park in Calumet
- Fisherman's Road in Taycheedah
- Wolf Lake
Chris discusses the placement of labels with Larry Kent.
Chris Anderson is joined by fellow Scouts to work on his
Eagle Scout project, including (from left) John Fuchs,
Matthew Dudarenke, Mike Fuchs, Jordon Friend, Kurt Weir,
and Patrick Weir. The Scouts are from Troop 705 of North
Fond du Lac.
