Beautiful and biodiverse – Shoreline gardens are functional, fantastic and fun. They can be tailored to match your style, maintain your views, and increase privacy- and they will help to attract birds, bees, and wildlife, while deterring nuisance geese and invasive warm water fishes.  Naturalized shorelines also filter water.

The Land Between is offering three more Shoreline Garden Workshops this year. Check their website for more details.
