The Vilas County Land and Water Conservation Department will be holding a free workshop from 2 to 4 p.m. next Friday, June 15 at the Vilas County Courthouse Conference Room B. The workshop is entitled "Healthy Lakes and Controlling Erosion: Tips for Waterfront Landowners."

One of the best ways to keep lakes and streams healthy is to keep soil and other pollutants out of the water, Vilas County conservationist Carolyn Scholl said. She invites all interested parties to join her for an afternoon to learn about different ways to repair and prevent soil movement on lake properties.

The Vilas County Conservation staff will walk attendees through the various methods available to address erosion caused by storm water runoff and explain how land owners can get financial assistance to complete projects that address erosion issues. This workshop will also be held on Aug. 3.

Another workshop is planned for Wednesday, June 20. It will run from 1 to 4 p.m. also in the Vilas County Courthouse Conference Room B. This workshop, entitled "Make Your Lake Management Plan Work," requires an RSVP as space is limited.

The conservation staff will address the next steps for a lake group once their lake management plan is done and how groups can move forward with the action items in the plan. All those interested are invited to attend and learn more about programs that are available to help with those actions and how grants can help reduce end costs for lake groups.

Another workshop, to be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, July 26, will be put on at the Boulder Junction Town Hall by Gina LaLiberte, WDNR water resources management specialist. This workshop, entitled "What's That Green Stuff Floating There?" is about a common nuisance on some lakes: algae. LaLiberte will inform attendees about different types of algae, how to identify them, and which are toxic or non-toxic.

For more information on any of these workshops, contact Scholl at 715-479-3682.
