The Lake Vernon Association works toward similar goals as other associations concerning the protection of natural shorelines and improving water quality in our lakes. The Kawartha Lakes Stewards Association for example, represents 24 cottager associations on more than a dozen lakes along the Trent-Severn Waterway. Kevin Walters (B.A.Sc., P.Eng.) the Director of the KLSA, has written an article addressing buffer zone, lawns and maintenance, run-off and grading, trees, leaves, septic systems, and shoreline protection from erosion.
Kevin’s article is an excellent vehicle to prompt dialogue about topics such as these. Please feel free to post a comment on any aspects of Sustainable Lakeshore Living and Shoreline Naturalization.
