LOCATION: Note new start location! We will meet just north of Snake river, on the west side of the lake. (across from the dam) Look for pontoon with CLA banner!
TIME: Parade starts at 1pm
PARADE ROUTE: (route typically takes about 2 hours) The parade will head south form the start location, into the south bay, then north via the east shore and around. (the parade will not enter the river)
Honorable Mention: $25 (x3)
In order to be considered for prizes, you must be registered and complete the parade route. Take a potty break but be sure to fall back in. Start brainstorming your “boat float” ideas now!
Otherwise, we hope you’ll get in your floaties or pull up a piece of shoreline and catch the parade! If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, please shoot us an email @ email@example.com

Cross Lake/Snake River Association contracted Limnopro to conduct an aquatic plant survey. The survey was conducted both in the late spring, during peak growth of curly-leaf and later in the summer to determine the specific plant community in the lake, after the curly-leaf pondweed dies off.
