What is AIS?
AIS Prevention
The Lotus Lake Conservation Alliance is dedicated to protecting and improving Lotus Lake in Chanhassen, Minnesota. By protecting and working with partners to enhance Lotus Lake and the surrounding waterways, the resource will be cleaner, safer and a more valued asset to anyone that enjoys the water including when fishing, swimming, boating, skiing or just taking in the view.  

Our primary focus is to proactively aid efforts keeping Aquatic Invasive Species out of Lotus Lake while educating the community. Anyone who shares an interest in working with our local community or enjoys the Lotus Lake resources are welcome to join.
2nd Annual LLCA 4th of July Lotus Lake Boat Parade - Save the Date!
Our 2017 theme is "Patriotic Minnesota" - so show us your creative and fun take on what celebrating in Minnesota on the 4th of July means to you! Is that Red White & Blue? Purple (for more than one reason)? What else makes you patriotic about where you live!  

Once again, three judges from the LLCA Board will be awarding the best boat presentation with our Lotus Lake inspired "Golden Oar" traveling trophy. So to get ready, here are your details for Tuesday July 4th:

  • 10:20am - Congregate at the south end of the lake, just not too close to the boat ramp.
  • 10:30am - Parade leaves, and proceeds slowly around the entire lake, led by JoAnn and Marc Syverson
  • 11:30am - Parade returns to south end for the presentation of the winner's trophy by the judges before everyone heads off to continue enjoying a great 4th!

Last year we had a great turnout both on and off the water and would love to see even more participation this year. It was a tight competition when Mark & his crew on the Patriotic MN Viking ship won the award, but don't forget that while we are encouraging decorating, any and all boats can join the parade or join in from the docks. Just come, have fun to kick start your July 4th celebration!
