According to an update from the Rock Lake Improvement Association, aerial spraying is occurring today at Zeloski Marsh in Lake Mills. The local DNR wildlife biologist will be out on the property notifying anyone who is planning on using the property during the time they’re applying, and some areas will be closed temporarily. The goal is to spray phragmites and invasive monoculture narrow leaved cattail stands, and promote hemi-marsh habitat (50% open water and 50% native emergent vegetation) which is optimal habitat for waterfowl. The upland areas of the marsh, east of the bike trail spur, is managed for prairie.
