Gregory with Jack CIoos in the fore- ground. 600,000 bluegill fry released into Big Stone Lake Recently Big Stone City Legionnaires along with Eagle Scout candidate, J.T. Gregory, released 600,000 bluegills - each 3/4" to 2" - into the waters of Big Stone Lake. Adult bluegills were netted in June from" Power Plant Lakes and trans- ferred"to the Rearing Ponds. The adults laid eggs and the new hatch- lings grew to sizes that could tolerate a larger environment. Gregory chose wildlife biology as one of his projects in becoming an Eagle Scout. Area fisherman report nice catches of bluegills on Big Stone Lake, espe- cially in the area between Kite and Skeleton Islands. Map reading skill winners!

Thousands of citizen and professional monitors will be testing the quality of their local water body as part of a nationwide celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. Everyone from professional scientists to elementary students will be mea- suring the temperature, dissolved oxy- gen, pH, and the turbidity/clarity of their river, lake, pond, or wetland. The Lac qui Parle - Yellow Bank Clean Water Partnership will be par- ticipating in the National Water Monitoring Day. On Oct. 18th the CWP staff will monitor thirteen sites found throughout the Lac qui Parle - Yellow Bank Watershed. Locations are found on the Lac qui Parle River, Cobb Creek, Canby Creek, Ten Mile Creek, and the Yellow Bank River. We are looking for any volunteers who may want to help out or learn more about water quality monitoring. The CWP staff will also be available to help anyone looking to monitor a favorite river or creek on the 18th. The data collected on Oct. 18th will help in drafting summary com- parisons reflecting changes in water quality over the last thirty years. A web site has been set up to register monitoring sites and collect the water quality data. The national monitoring effort is being coordinated by American's Clean Water Foundation, in coopera- tion with several other environmental groups and government agencies across the country.
