Are you losing your shoreline? Is your shoreline/streambank eroding into the water? You may be eligible to recieve funding through cost-share programs that assist landowners with water quality and shoreline/streambank restorations. Up to 75% of project costs could be covered to restore high quality native shoreland/streambank buffers that protect water quality, reduce soil erosion, and save your bank. A shoreland buffer can be composed of a mix of native aquatic plants, grasses, wildflowers and/or shrubs and trees.
