"Healthy Lakeshores Through Better Shoreline Stewardship"


      In celebration of  Lakes Appreciation Month


Register at: www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts


Join us for an exciting Webcast in honor of Lakes Appreciation Month and learn about improving lakeshore habitat through better shoreline stewardship. EPA'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. All those who care about lakes—lake and homeowner associations, natural resource agencies, state and local governments, anglers, realtors and others—are invited to learn about threats to our freshwater lakes and ways to make a difference. Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance. Participants are encouraged to download presentations prior to the Webcast at www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts <http://www.epa.gov/watershedwebcasts> . More information on the National Lakes Assessment is available at http://epa.gov/lakessurvey/ <http://epa.gov/lakessurvey/> .
