Seeing Our Shorelines

Our Shoreline - Our Lawn

According to one estimate, when the buffer zone concept is used, most lakeside lawns could be reduced 40% and the property would still retain the uses the owner desires.

What is needed, for us and our neighbors, is a deeper awareness of the different dimensions of the shoreline - a new way of looking at the lake - and its potential.

We have developed a visual awareness exercise that will help develop this new aesthetic. Perhaps your friends and neighbors would enjoy taking this survey (next page) with you and sharing their observations.
