July 15th EPA Webcast: Healthy Lakeshores Through Better Shoreline Stewardship

June 29, 2010 | EPA

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Watershed Academy is pleased to sponsor its 50th free Webcast Seminar on July 15, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern in honor of Lakes Appreciation Month. In this Webcast participants can 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. Anyone with an interest in lakes (such as lake and homeowner associations, natural resource agencies, state and local governments, anglers, realtors, and others) is invited to learn about the pressures to freshwater lakes and explore 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.
