There’s something magical about spending time at a lake, whether you’re swimming, boating, fishing, or just sitting and listening to the lapping waves. There are simple steps property owners can take to keep their lakes clean and healthy for generations to come. Shoreline Living magazine shares the examples of five ordinary property owners who have done something extraordinary. Each is taking steps in their own way to do their part to care for the lake. From small steps on a relatively manicured property to an almost fully forested and natural landscape, the articles within feature the efforts of people just like you.
The Midwest Glacial Lakes Partnership is proud to share this Shoreline Living magazine, which provides examples of everyday shoreline property owners that dipped their toes into a natural shoreline.
The magazine was produced by a collaborative group of managers and outreach professionals across the Upper Midwest (including the Van Buren Conservation District) for property owners and lake professionals to print and use freely.
