The Ely Area Invasives Team Dedicated to preventing the spread of Invasive Species to and from the Ely Area.
The Ely Area Invasives Team is a local group that is organizing to bring together technical knowledge and public awareness in an effort to prevent the spread, manage the impacts and mitigate the effects of invasive species. Current partners in this effort include the Ely Field Naturalists, Burntside, White Iron Chain, Eagles Nest and Vermilion Lake Associations, Shagawa Lake Marina, Ely Community Resource, Lake and St. Louis County SWCDs, and the 1854 Treaty Authority.
As an Ely conservation officer stated recently, "...it will come down to resort/lakeshore owners policing their customers and visitors (friends/relatives) that are coming in from other areas. No equipment should go un-checked from other areas! "It will take diligent efforts from all of us to stop the spread of AIS in our lakes.
