Healthy Shorelines for Healthy Lakes

Lake Projects

With the help of funding from DFO’s Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program, shoreline property owners have been naturalizing (re-planting) their shorelines. From maintaining water quality, preventing soil erosion, reducing flooding and providing wildlife habitat - healthy shorelines are extremely important!

Check out some of these great pictures of shoreline plantings! To view a larger image, click on the thumbnail below.
