The OLMD is asking for your help in keeping it out of Okauchee Lake. There are several things you can do to keep it out of Okauchee Lake waterways. 1) Please be on the lookout for this invasive species in the lake. 2) Please thoroughly inspect and clean your boat, watercrafts and trailer if you have been in Little Muskego Lake, Big Muskego Lake and Long Lake in Racine County recently. 3) Learn about Starry Stonewort. Public education and prevention is critical to keeping this plant out of Okauchee Lake. Identification information on Starry Stonewort can be found on the “Reports” page of this website.
