Waterfront property owners have a unique opportunity to protect and enhance our water resources. Replacing turf grasses with native and flowering shoreline plants can reduce soil erosion and nutrient runoff into lakes and streams thereby improving surface water quality. A shoreline restoration workshop is being held on July 17th on the Gas Coffeehouse patio. The workshop is free and open to everyone. You are asked to please reserve with Shawano UW-Extension by calling 715-526-6136. The meeting will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. In the event of rain they will move the meeting inside.
