Did you know that having a natural shoreline with a variety of plants helps prevent erosion, protects water quality, improves biodiversity, reduces flood water damage, and looks beautiful? Watersheds Canada is able to help landowners in the Mississippi watershed, Cataraqui watershed, and St. Lawrence River Area of Concern (Cornwall) take action to protect their shoreline and lake with Shoreline Re-Naturalization Kits. When you purchase a starter kit, you get the benefit of our staff’s expertise helping you along the way as well as 50 carefully selected native plants and all the materials and resources needed to complete your own shoreline naturalization project.
Each year, Watersheds Canada encourages property owners to take advantage of the Natural Edge program, which provides helpful solutions to protect their shorelines. Site visits are free within our delivery region and kits cost a one-time fee. For more information, please email Chantal at naturaledge (at) watersheds.ca
Thank you to the Great Lakes Local Action Fund for funding this restoration project. If you live outside of these areas and are interested in renaturalizing your shoreline with native plants, be sure to visit the Natural Edge website to access the free Native Plant Database, resource guides, and a full list of our national delivery partners.
