The training is free and will be held in a virtual format on Friday November 4th from 8:00 – 3:30, covering topics related to shoreland development and lake water quality. This training is geared toward all those who work or live along lakeshores. Lake ecology, regulations, bioengineering methods, and stormwater best management practices will all be discussed as a part of this exciting day!
Vermont has over 1400 miles of lakeshores with some of the greatest residential density and development pressure in the state. This voluntary certification course teaches landscaping techniques that control stormwater runoff and conserve wildlife habitat, which are essential shoreland development practices for protecting Vermont lakes.
Certified participants will be listed on the Agency of Natural Resources web site; given priority for certain ANR grant funded shoreland projects; and awarded professional development credits, including four non-soil credits for Licensed Designers.
