Instructor: Jim Ravis, Minnesota Master Gardener.

One of the keys to keeping Lone Lake’s water quality high is reducing run-off from surrounding lake home and farm-lot properties. This free class covers how to apply lakeshore-landscaping principles to prevent erosion and reduce run-off. Use of plants and “hard-scaping” materials will be covered. In the afternoon activity, which is optional, participants will stake out the locations for wildflowers, trees and shrubs for the 297th Lane retention pond and hillside planting.
