The grants we receive from the Wisconsin DNR are a 75% –25% split, which means the RTLIA is responsible for 25% of the cost. We do have the option of offsetting our 25% by recording volunteer time via this website.
The RTLIA receives $12 per hour for time we spend performing specific tasks improving our lakes and these are tasks many of us are already performing!
Examples of your time that can be applied to our 25% cost are:
- Eurasion Watermilfoil(EWM) or other Aquatic Invasive Specie(AIS) harvesting around lakeshore docks
- Documenting and Reporting problems you see on the lake
- Attending a class or forum sponsored by the DNR
Wondering if the work you do can be recorded as volunteer hours? Check out the Grants and approved Volunteer Tasks on the “Current Grants” page or send us a list of the work you have completed and we will enter it for you. Send your list or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
