Forest Lake Homeowners to Host an “Evening Along the Shore” – Thursday, Aug. 14, 5:30-7:30pm

Have you ever wondered how you can transform your shore into an attractive landscape that provides better wildlife habitat (no geese!), prevents erosion from washing away waterfront property and helps to protect lake water quality?

On Thursday, August 14, 5:30-7:30pm, the public is welcome to visit the home of Kris and Jerry Haider, whose shoreline exemplifies the concept of living beautifully with nature. This free, informal outdoor workshop is sponsored by the City of Forest Lake and the Comfort Lake Forest Lake Watershed District with support from the East Metro Water Resource Education Program. Join us for a dinner, pontoon tours of shoreline plantings, and get ideas for your own shoreline and learn how you can:


       Incorporate a buffer zone of native plants while maintaining a dock and path to the shore;

       Reduce the need to mow, fertilize and use pesticides, thereby saving time and money;

        Manage drainage and erosion issues using native plants;

        Create habitat for birds and wildlife on your property;

       Tap into resources available through the Washington Conservation District and your Watershed District.
