A: Aquatic plants are essential components of most freshwater ecosys- tems. Many of Minnesota's most sought-after fish spe- cies depend heavily on aquatic vegetation for food, protection from predators and reproduction. In addi- tion to fish, many wildlife species depend on aquatic plants for food and nest- ing sites. Aquatic plants not eaten directly by waterfowl support many insects and other aquatic invertebrates that serve as important food sources for migratory birds and their young. Emergent aquatic veg- etation also provides nest- ing cover for a variety of waterfowl, wading birds, shorebirds and songbirds. The reproductive success of ducks nesting near lakes, for example, is closely tied to the availability of aquatic plants. Beyond providing food and shelter for fish and wildlife, aquatic vegetation maintains water clarity, pre- vents suspension of bottom sediments, and limits shore- line erosion by moderating the effects of wave and ice erosion. A healthy native plant community also pre- vents the establishment of non-native invasive aquatic plants. In short, many of the things that we enjoy most about lakes are directly linked to aquatic vegetation. - Steve Enger, DNR Aquatic Plant Management Program coordinator 4TH ANNUAL 182325 Car & Motorcycle Cruise turday, July10 i inviies classic car siasts and bikers to ct'uise Sanford Westbrook is )hysicals at a REGULAR CLINIC HOURS: 9-11:30 1-4:30 M-F July 12-16 & July 19-23 Your Parent/gaurdian must be present during your appointment, We will also need you to bring your immunization record & glasses if applicable.
