Let’s Reverse Deteriorating Shorelines
The health of your lake, river, or waterfront property depends on it.
The Problem is Real
The impact of human interference is causing some alarming issues for our lakes, rivers and shorelines, causing issues such as erosion, flooding, run-off, algae and poor water quality. Taking a few actionable steps today can reverse the damaging effect to our shorelines over the long-term.
Resources, Programs & Initiatives
Love Your Lake
Not sure where to start? We can help. Contact us for an assessment of your shoreline and all kinds of tips and tricks to improve its natural beauty.
The Natural Edge
Restoring a natural shoreline will improve your lake, and shoreline health. Reduce run-off and attract wildlife like butterflies and frogs. Minimal maintenance required.
Fish Habitats Program
Many lakes are lacking in natural structures like fallen trees, branches, stumps for fish to spawn in. Receive guidance to re-introduce a natural habitat once again.
Blue Lakes is an eco-label program that provides a template for action and education. It is a label and a portfolio of tools, resources, and activities that can be tailored to your lake’s needs.
Before & After
When you naturalize your shoreline, you have the best of both worlds: you resolve the issues to create a healthy shoreline, and you have a property where you don't lose your view or enjoyment.
Plants Make a Difference
Natural shorelines are the best protection for your lake's water quality. It stabilizes soil and slows down nutrients and other run-off from artificially aging your lake.
Even More to Enjoy!
We work with you to choose plants you will love. Native plants require less maintenance, and are loved by butterflies and other animals.
Increase Aesthetic Appeal & Recreational Opportunities
Naturalizing your shoreline is easier than you think and the long-term results are stunning! Shoreline vegetation acts as a buffer to a host of natural and man-made pollutants.
