Buffer Blitz Workshop: Protecting lakes from property runoff

The Highland Lake Association (HLA) is hosting a Buffer Blitz Workshop on June 13, 2019 from 5 – 7 pm at the Cornerstone Church (lower level) located on Cottage Road in Windham, Maine. This workshop is open to the public. The purpose is to update residents regarding best practices for improving the vegetated buffer on your property.

Keep the Lakes Region area  clean
A vegetated buffer is the mix of plants, shrubs and trees between your house and a water body, that serves to filter any potential runoff from your property.   

Since almost everyone lives in a watershed, this workshop is not to be missed by anyone in the community. The HLA invites you to learn the best methods for upgrading the vegetated buffer on your property, particularly if you live on the shoreline of a lake or stream. 

At this workshop, you will have the opportunity to interact with plant specialists, landscapers, town staff, and personnel from the DEP, Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District and representatives from the HLA regarding the best ways that you can improve your property value and water quality by enhancing and upgrading your vegetated buffer. Food and beverages will be provided, and the first 25 people in attendance will receive a door prize.
