Healthy Shorelines for Healthy Lakes


People working on a shoreline restoration project

We believe daily actions by all individuals can help preserve the water in lakes and rivers. Shoreline property owners in particular can play a significant role.

Shoreline Property Owner

If you had the opportunity to have your shoreline professionally assessed or have taken our shoreline self-assessment, have you thought about actions you would like to take to enhance your shoreline? Check out our Action Checklist to determine how you can help improve the health of your shoreline.





How does your shoreline look?

Your dock, stairs, an eaves troughs can all impact the quality and health of your shoreline property. If you haven’t had your shoreline assessed by a trained Love Your Lake team member, you can perform your own shoreline assessment by using this Shoreline Assessment Guide.

Take the Shoreline Assessment to see how healthy your shoreline is.


How can you help improve your shoreline?

We believe daily actions by individuals can help preserve the water in lakes and rivers. Shoreline property owners in particular can play a significant role by taking positive actions to protect and enhance their shoreline properties. Check out our Shoreline Action Checklist to see what positive steps you’ve already taken and potential actions you can take now and in the future. You can also take a look at our Resources for more tips and tricks for shoreline health and stewardship activities.
