The Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership’s (MNSP) “Shoreline Educator Training” is returning to the Michigan Association of Conservation Districts’ Fall Convention. This is a one day training for individuals interested in becoming a part of the “Shoreline Educator Network (SEN)”.  The SEN is a statewide network, established in 2011, of natural resource professionals equipped with the tools to conduct inland lake natural shoreline programs for property owners.  If you are a natural resource organization representative, member of a waterfront property owners’ association, local government official, or a watershed resident interested in motivating your community to learn more – and do more – about protecting your lake and local water quality, then this workshop is perfect for you! During this workshop you will learn about how and why it is important to protect inland lakes with natural shoreline landscaping and erosion.

 You will receive the MNSP “Natural Shoreline Landscapes on Michigan’s Inland Lakes: Guidebook for Property Owners”, be provided access to an educational tool kit specifically for shoreline workshops and events for homeowners and have the opportunity to be listed on the MNSP website as a Shoreline Educator.
