Shoreland habitat restoration is the practice of restoring the transition, or rather, buffer zone, between land and water. This talk will explore restoration projects that have not only enhanced human enjoyment and property values, but also created highly desired ecological benefits to lakeshore habitats, wildlife, fisheries, and the interdependent web of lake life.

Zach Woiak, Fisheries Management Biologist, WDNR
