DNR Promotes Shorline Buffers for Brainerd Lakes

More and more lake shore owners in the Brainerd area are restoring their shoreline buffers, or are allowing turf to revert to native vegetation, according to DNR Lakes Planner Erika Rivers. She tells KLKS News, there are a lot of benefits to a natural buffer. Native plants have longer roots, and aid in erosion control. They attract various forms of wildlife. They filter pollutants that turn lakes green. And, they require a lot less work for homeowners.
