This website builds on information and activities from previous efforts, primarily the "Restore Your Shore" CD-ROM, the "Lakescaping for Wildlife and Water Quality" book, a series of 14 one-day lakescaping workshops, and the establishment of a number of shoreland restoration demonstration projects.
All of these efforts involve the contributions of individuals too numerous to mention here, but that deserve acknowledgment and thanks. Carrol Henderson merits special recognition for his vision and leadership in advancing natural shoreland management in Minnesota.
