Watershed Academy Slates Shoreline Stewardship Webcast
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Watershed Academy is sponsoring its 50th free Webcast Seminar from 1 to 3 p.m. Eastern time on July 15 in honor of Lakes Appreciation Month. Participants can learn about improving lakeshore habitat through better shoreline stewardship.
The agency's first-ever assessment of the ecological condition of the nation's lakes, the National Lakes Assessment, identifies poor lakeshore habitat and high levels of nutrients as leading stressors affecting the biological health of lakes. Experts from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Maine will share innovative local and statewide lakeshore protection initiatives, touching on both voluntary and regulatory measures.
Everyone with an interest in lakes (such as lake and homeowner associations, natural resource agencies, state and local governments, anglers, realtors, and others) is invited to learn about the pressures to freshwater lakes and explore ways to make a difference. Webcast participants can receive a certificate for their attendance. Participants are encouraged to download presentations prior to the Webcast.
