The Northwoods Land Trust’s (NWLT) Shoreland Protection Initiative is currently being promoted to shoreland residents in Vilas County and northern Langlade County. The goals of the Shoreland Protection Initiative are to educate the public about the value of protecting privately-owned, undeveloped shoreline along our lakes, ponds, rivers and streams in Wisconsin’s northwoods, and to motivate landowners to permanently conserve land along our waters for future generations.
The Shoreland Protection Initiative promotion is being funded by a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ Lake Protection grant and is supported by partners including the Vilas County Lakes & Rivers Association, Vilas County Land & Water Conservation Department, Langlade County Land Conservation Department, Langlade County Waterways Association and others. View the partnership video below aired on WJFW Newswatch 12.
