Alison covered the reasons for the program’s existence, reviewed the process of getting Lake Wise assessments, and briefly spoke about the Lake Wise “Gold Award”.  She also covered several common best management practices for lake shorelines and described how lake associations can help promote the Lake Wise program. The presentation also included a Q &A at the end.
