Natural shorelines provide multiple benefits to our inland lakes. Natural shoreline landscaping and bioengineered erosion control techniques can restore those benefits by reducing runoff, deterring geese, stabilizing soils and improving fish and wildlife habitat while maintaining aesthetically pleasing access to your lake. Already have rock or sea wall? Learn how to enhance those structures for the benefit of your lake.
Workshop topics include:
- Healthy lake ecosystems
- Designing natural landscapes on lake shorelines
- Problems with high impact landscape methods
- Use of native plants in shoreline landscapes
- State of Michigan rules and regulations
We have some outstanding folks that will present the information and answer your questions. Including folks from MDEQ Water Resources Division, Kalamazoo Nature Center, MDNR Fisheries, and Native Connections.
