Shoreline Stewards

Hello Hess Lake Residents,

Have you ever wondered how your property could impact the ecology of Hess Lake?

The Michigan Shoreline Stewards Program developed a survey that property owners could take to see how their property could impact the ecology of a lake. In addition, take a look at the five videos that demonstrate what could be done with your shoreline. 








If you have any questions or comments please contact the Nonpoint Source Staff.
