USWA & Natural Edge Shoreline Protection at Nickle Lake

 

The Upper Souris Watershed Association was involved with the Natural Edge Shoreline Protection project at Nickle Lake, Sk, in October, 2017. The program is designed to protect waterbodies by establishing native vegetation along the shoreline. Once established ,the vegetation will help keep our water cleaner, protecting our aquatic species, and will provide and excellent habitat for our terrestrial species.
