7 Lakes Alliance has acquired Clean Water Act grants to control erosion around McGrath Pond, Salmon Lake and North Pond. Supported by those funds, our Youth Conservation Corps is seeking erosion-control projects around those lakes, particularly if improvements were suggested in a LakeSmart evaluation.
Comprised of high school and college students, the YCC installs erosion controls, such as vegetative buffers, driplines, meandering paths and infiltration steps. The property owner pays for materials plus a fraction of the YCC's labor costs.
To explore whether your lakefront property would benefit from a YCC project, or to schedule a project for summer 2023, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
