Shoreline and Shallows Conference

Date: March 11, 2015 - March 11, 2015
Location: Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center

Natural shorelines are becoming well recognized as excellent alternatives to manmade structures. These shorelines use native plants and other natural materials to help reduce surface water runoff, stabilize eroding soils, deter geese, improve fish and wildlife habitat, and revitalize the lakeshore. The Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership (MNSP) and its partners will feature case studies and current research related to bioengineering shorelines sites, lakeshore habitats, shoreline restoration and habitat improvement. The cost to attend is $45, which includes lunch and coffee breaks. Certified Natural Shoreline Professional continuing education units may be available for attending this conference.
