Be a champion for a healthy and vibrant Lake Erie by proudly displaying your very own mayfly – and in so doing, help show your support and spread the word about Standing Rush!


Admittedly, the mayfly is somewhat like a Canada Goose – perhaps best appreciated singly or at least in small groups. But this elegant insect has become synonymous with the Western Basin of Lake Erie due to immense “emergences” during the spring and summer.


Mayflies actually spend the vast majority of their lifecycle at the very bottom of the lake, entombed in mud, silt, or sand. But after a year or more out of sight, individuals rise to the surface (sometimes literally by the millions), unfurl their wings, and set out for their short-lived existence in the sky -- or covering about anything and everything in their flight path.


Their terrestrial existence may only be measured in days or even hours, but they leave a lasting impression. Mayflies are thought to be a sign of improving water quality, so we’ll take them . . . and so will any hungry walleye or perch!



NOTE: Know that by purchasing Standing Rush products, you are standing for something great. Each decal sold online contributes nearly $5 directly to our restoration and management efforts -- these funds NEVER go to anything else. So you can sleep with a smile knowing that your purchase helps us fund critical functions like mowing, spraying, pumping water, stabilizing shorelines, and improving habitat. Bottom line: trust that these dollars are being put to good use!
