Anyone with an interest in healthy lakes, lawns, and water quality is invited to attend a free workshop. Nathan Thomas from the IDNR Division of Fish and Wildlife will present information, provide photos, and bring hands-on examples to explain what healthy shorelines are, how they benefit our lakes, what they entail, how much they cost, and how to maintain them. Mr. Thomas will discuss glacial stone seawalls, bioengineered seawalls, lake-friendly landscaping (including shoreline buffers), and the placement of glacial stone in front of existing seawalls.
Lyn Crighton, Executive Director of the Tippecanoe Watershed Foundation will also explain the new Healthy Shorelines Initiative II grants program. Tippecanoe Watershed residents are eligible to apply for up to 75% of the cost of a healthy shoreline project. This program is supported through a grant from the IDNR Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) program.
This workshop will be held at the North Webster Community Center ~ located at 301 N Main Street (on State Road 13) in North Webster, IN. We also hope to visit a few nearby project sites.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or the TWF office at 574/834-3242.
These workshops are sponsored by the Tippecanoe Watershed Foundation, the Indiana Lakes Management Society, and the Upper Tippecanoe River Lakes Association (UTRLA).
Refreshments will be provided.
