Shoreline restoration project

Putting in a stone path
Our local newspaper, the SunPost, had a nice article, Memory Lane Pond gets a beauty treatment, on a shoreline restoration project being done in the city of Crystal.  

I'm pleased to be assisting with this project as a board member with the Crystal Fund for Community Progress.  One of the photos I submitted, a group of workers from the Tree Trust putting in a stone path (above) made the front cover of this newspaper. 

Some of the benefits of a natural shoreline include less long-term maintenance, enhanced habitat for water foul and animals, reduction of erosion, slowing rain runoff, diversification of plants and shrubs and last, but not least, beautification.
