To celebrate Earth Week, the Natural Edge Program is releasing the updated version of the Shoreline Habitat Creation Manual. This free resource offers over 14 resources to enhance habitat for landowners. Some of them are as easy as “retiring” your lawn by creating a no-mow zone, while other projects will see you creating habitat structures to provide habitat and protection from animals, like creating a turtle nest protection cage.

“This manual is intended for landowners wanting to ecologically enhance their property and create essential habitat for fish and wildlife species.
With an increase in waterfront development and the removal of vegetation, many of our fish and wildlife species have experienced a loss of critical habitat. Unfortunately, many of our native wildlife populations are declining because of this habitat loss. However, there are many ways that waterfront property owners can preserve or create habitat to co-exist with fish and wildlife species.”
