Larry the Frog Wants to Talk With YOU


 

Shell Lake

Shell Lake

We just received an email from John Haack, St. Croix Basin Natural Resources Educator, UW-Extension, regarding a  a YouTube video about the importance of shoreline restoration. To keep northern Wisconsin lakes thriving in natural habitat for frogs, property owners along the store need to pay attention to Larry the bull frog. 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 summer residents will follow the call to convert their shoreline to native habitat so that Shell Lake can remain pristine.

 Land and Water Conservation Department works closely with lake property owners to help them undersand why native habitat is so important.

  Mowed lawns down to the lake are upsetting the natural order and more shoreline can be lost to erosion if it continues.
