Planning Shoreline Restoration

Now is the time to start planning shoreline restoration projects, according to Heather Baird, Shoreland Habitat Specialist with the Brainerd office of the DNR. She tells KLKS News, native plants are the way to go, whether using seeds or plugs. She says they are adapted to our weather extremes, and will not become nuisance plants.

Baird says native plants have a better root system than sod, and are better suited to stop erosion and pollutants from entering lakes. To schedule an on-site consultation, Baird can be reached at (218) 833-8648.
