Buffers for Lake Water Quality

Thursday, July 25 –

Event Time: 7 pm - 8pm

Gibbs Library
40 Old Union Rd, Washington

Hildy Ellis, of Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District, will present on "Vegetated Buffers for Lake Water Quality" at the Washington Lakes Assn annual meeting. This slide presentation will demonstrate how landowners can improve water infiltration on shorefront properties with a vegetated buffer of native plants. Open to the Public. Vegetated buffers stabilize shoreland soils, absorb water and nutrients, trap excess soil, provide wildlife habitat – including pollinators - and mimic natural systems to create a dynamic landscape to enjoy in all seasons. The public is invited to this free program. For more information, contact Charlotte Henderson at 845-2661.
