This workshop will highlight the importance of preserving or restoring native vegetation along shorelines. Participants will be introduced to methods of shoreline management to control erosion and to support wildlife and provide healthy habitat for fish. Information on natural shoreline plants, planting zones, and shoreline erosion control techniques will be shared. A combination of lecture and field observation will help participants to recognize potential problems and opportunities on lakefront they own, manage, or steward. For more information, view the event page at the Gratiot Lake Conservancy website.
