workers planting a shoreline restoration project

This is the fun part.

Steps & Techniques is where you get your hands dirty or your feet wet - maybe both. You will work on a real shoreline project - your own! It's a chance to use what you have learned in the Program Introduction and Shore Lore Sections:

  • The structure and function of shorelands.
  • Reasons for managing shorelands using ecological principles.
  • Insights from other lakeshore owners on using a natural approach to restoring the shoreline.

In Steps & Techniques, you will find:

"...So what can you do, to restore the shoreline,
to bring back the fish, and return the deer.
Just replant the shore, control the runoff,
the algae will leave, the waters will clear.
Oh butterflies and bald eagles you're what I'm looking for.
The shoreline is a home for you when we take care of it more... "
