Shoreline Stabilization Guide

The Wisconsin Shoreline Stabilization Outreach Project (SSOP) developed Shoreline Stabilization: A Guide for Homeowners and Conservationists on Inland Lakes and Flowages as an educational tool for property owners and conservationists alike.

The SSOP is made up of conservationists, technicians, and outreach specialists from 11 LCDs across Wisconsin, with assistance from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP).

A DNR surface water grant was received to help publish this booklet and was matched by contributions from several Area Land Conservation Associations. A full list of contributors to this document are located on the last page of the booklet.
