From Kathy Bartilson:
Greetings Washburn County Lakes and Rivers Association (WCLRA) members – here is a time-sensitive message from Lisa Burns, with the Washburn County Land and Water Conservation Department:
Are you interested in funding to restore your shoreline, add native plant diversity or stop erosion?
The County Land and Water Conservation Department is looking to add shoreline owners to their Healthy Lakes Grant. This is a reimbursable grant in which each best practice is capped at $1,000. The grant pays up to 75% of costs and landowners must provide 25% match in the form of cash or volunteer labor. This grant does not pay for rip-rap for shoreline protection and there is a cap on funding available.
If interested, by June 10th, please contact Lisa Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-468-4654 to schedule a site visit and discuss the grant in more detail.
Visit https://healthylakeswi.com/ for more information on the healthy lakes program.
Note: WCLRA does not share our member contact information, but forwards lake and river-related messages from our partners. If you prefer to not receive these emails, just respond to this message and we’ll make a note in our records.
WCLRA’s mission: Our purpose is to promote the environmental protection and responsible use of Washburn County surface waters and their attendant wetlands, shorelands and wildlife resources. We do that by sharing ideas and information through education and active participation for the benefit of individual property owners, lake and river districts and associations, local government, the general public, future generations, and the waters themselves.
