FOVLAP encourages lake property owners to retain existing vegetation and to add natural vegetation to their shoreland, since this is the best and lowest cost approach to protecting lake health. In 2014, through our Vermont Fish and Wildlife Watershed Grant, we are once again working with 8 lake associations and 40 property owners to plant blueberry bushes on their shores.
