9th Annual WAPOA Shoreland Restoration Contest
Have you been thinking about restoring all or a portion of your shoreland back to a natural state or creating a shoreland buffer to help improve our water quality?
WAPOA encourages interested lakeshore owners who are interested in improving our water quality and shoreland wildlife habitat to participate in the 9th Annual WAPOA Shoreland Restoration Contest. Your lakeshore must be on one of the 39 lakes (238 miles of shoreland) on which WAPOA conducts water quality testing. This contest can provide you with expert advice, together with WAPOA’s contest funding, to help you complete your restoration project. Contestants will compete for up to a total pool of $20,000, which will be awarded to qualified projects at WAPOA’s discretion. Previous winners have won awards of up to $3800.
Contest Details and Meeting Dates If you are interested in being a contestant or are curious about improving your shoreland for water quality and wildlife/pollinator habitat there will be two WAPOA Open Houses.
Removing lake plants could require a permit
Lakeshore property owners are reminded that a permit may be required to remove aquatic plants.
“We remind folks each year that aquatic plants are essential to healthy lake ecosystems and property owners who want to remove them should check the regulations to see if they need a permit,” said Steve Enger, supervisor of the aquatic plant management program for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Aquatic plants provide food and shelter for fish, ducks and other wildlife. They stabilize the lake bottom, which helps maintain water clarity. These plants also protect shorelines from erosion by absorbing energy from waves and ice.
