Do you have time to volunteer for a one-time, short-term project to help your lake?
A special project for selected lakes in Portage, Marathon and Waushara County is being undertaken by the Center for Watershed Science and Education and Extension Lakes at UW-Stevens Point. During recent lake management planning meetings across each county, participants identified improving shoreland health as a priority in many of the plans. Healthy shorelands improve water quality, wildlife/fish habitats, and property values. To help lake residents understand what a healthy shoreline looks like and how it affects lake health, project volunteers will reach out to their neighbors with information and tips that can be used to make a property more “lake-friendly”.
Consider joining the team in developing the informational materials and then sharing them with your neighbors. Days and times are flexible – just think how a few hours of conversation with your neighbors could benefit your lake! Project volunteers will receive training and ongoing support. Enthusiasm required, no experience necessary!

And please share this opportunity with others, including your lake group!
