The Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership (MNSP) will hold two workshops for individuals interested in becoming part of the MNSP “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 member of a waterfront property owners’ association, local government official, natural resource organization representative, or a watershed resident interested in motivating your community to learn more – and do more – about protecting local water quality, then this workshop is perfect for you!
Thursday November 8, 2012: Ralph A. MacMullan Center on Higgins Lake hosted by Huron Pines.
During these workshops staff from Huron Pines or MSUE and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality technical staff will be on hand to walk through presentation materials and answer questions about both the technical aspects of shoreline protection as well as the best way to organize and successfully give local workshops.
