Join the Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan and the Benzie Conservation District for a tour of demonstration sites for natural shoreline landscapes. See for yourself how you can use natural shorelines to beautify your landscape and help ensure clean waters, deter geese, prevent erosion problems, and improve fish and wildlife habitat. We will be touring shoreline projects at Lake Ann, Platte Lake, and Watervale Resort. $5 suggested donation. Please RSVP to the Benzie Conservation District, (231) 882-4391.
