Larry the Frog wants to talk to YOU!

We just received an email from John Haack, St. Croix Basin Natural Resources Educator, UW-Extension, regarding a YouTube video about the importance of shoreline restoration. To keep northern Wisconsin lakes thriving in natural habitat for frogs and fish, property owners along the shoreline need to pay attention to Larry the bullfrog. Won’t you take a moment and listen to him too?

Larry, the All-American Bullfrog

Written by John Haack, Bret Shaw and Travis

Happy Tonics has a Restored Remnant Tallgrass Prairie not far from Shell Lake’s public beach. The lake, so far, is pristine. We hope that lakeside residents will follow the call to convert their shoreline to native habitat so that Shell Lake can remain pristine.

Shoreline Restoration Garden created by Land and Water Conservation Department, Shell Lake. WI. Land and Water Conservation Department works closely with lake property owners to help them understand why native habitat is so important. Mowed lawns down to the lake upset the natural order and more shoreline can be lost to erosion if it continues.
