Harvesting Committee

Volunteers Needed

The harvesting operation on Buffalo Lake requires understanding the current operation, planning for the future, time, money and dedication. The paid seasonal workers carry out the plan, but volunteers on the Harvesting Committee do almost everything else. There is a lot of work being done even in the off season to prepare and improve the operations. More volunteers are needed to work on the projects currently on the table. If you have voiced your opinion on the lake condition, please join the committee to help. With more helpful hands chipping in, better outcomes for our lake are possible. Contact Gary Kershaw at

Coming in 2021

Back by popular demand! The inaugural boat parade on Buffalo Lake was
a huge success and feedback from lake district members was overwhelmingly
in favor of doing it again next year. If you'd like to be on the planning committee, contact Ro Klecz at In the meantime, check out the
Photo Gallery from 2020 and start thinking about your decorations! 
Can you top the Ariel, Bigfoot and Aquaman creations from 2020?

What do you want to know about our harvesting operations?

We get a lot of questions about our harvesting of lake weeds. Rightly so, as it is the largest expense for our lake district and it affects all of our district members. We compiled an FAQ with the most common questions we receive, so members have a good baseline of information for how the operation works - before, during and after the official cutting season. Take a look at the FAQ, and if you have other questions, let us know.
