Buttonbush is a native plant that grows in wet open areas and along rivers, ponds, and lakes. It blooms in early-mid summer and the white flower heads are very attractive to bees and butterflies. Buttonbush is common around Crane Lake’s (Iron County) shoreline.
Please remember to save July 12, 2018 on your calendar. Mark Twain National Forest will be hosting the Crane Lake Community Forum at Thee Abbey Kitchen (Study Hall Room) in Arcadia. The forum will begin at 5 p.m. and should end by 7 p.m. We will share results of the engineering studies of the dam and we will report out on the community outreach work we’ve been conducting to ascertain the value of Crane Lake to you. Forest Supervisor Sherri Schwenke will be on hand to explain next steps in choosing an alternative to address the dam’s deficiencies.
For questions about the Crane Lake Community Forum, contact the Potosi Ranger Station at 573-438-5427.
