Fringe Benefits

Restoring Wisconsin's Shoreland & Shallows

For many of us, lake shore lands and the shallow areas near shore conjure up many blissful emotions. They are places where memories are born. A place where picnics, laughter, and many wet adventures played out. The 2010 Wisconsin Lakes Convention took an in depth look at these critical areas. The Convention featured national experts on the nature and inner workings and restoration of the shore land areas. Experts from around North America gathered to discuss the research, management options, educational ideas and needed policy changes to deal more effectively with this important issue. On these pages you will find copies of many of the presentations given at the event. The lake topics featured here cover the entire suite of lake management issues with a focus on the preservation and restoration of shore land areas.
