Lakescaping Workshop

  • 01 Aug 2009
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College

We need your input on “Lakescaping” in Indiana!

Workshop:  August 1st, 9:00 am to Noon (Eastern time)

The Indiana Dept of Natural Resources Division of Fish & Wildlife, Indiana Lakes Management Society, and Midwest Glacial Lakes Fish Habitat Partnership are pleased to invite you to a free, interactive workshop on lakescaping for wildlife and water quality.  Participants will learn about the benefits of a natural vegetated buffer zone along the lakeshore and how to restore landscaping that has multiple values for erosion control, nutrient filtration, aesthetics, and goose deterrence along their shoreline property. 

Participants will learn about the many benefits of lakescaping and will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the workshop content along the way!  Turning Point (TM) voting technology will be used to poll the audience throughout the course of the morning, giving you the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with us, helping us better meet the needs of you and other lake users in the future.  Please join us and give us your input!

When:  Saturday, August 1st, 2009, 9:00 am to noon (Eastern time)

Where:  In the Learning Center building at Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College near Wolf Lake in Noble County, Indiana.  See below for directions.   

An optional tour of the sustainably-designed, energy efficient LEED-certified facilities and restored native prairie and wetlands on the property will follow the workshop.
