Registration for the OTC COLA and EOT SWCD Sept. 16 Shoreline Restoration bus tour is available at the OTC COLA website.

The Otter Tail County Coalition of Lake Associations (OTC COLA) and East Otter Tail County Soil and Water Conservation District (EOT SWCD) are sponsoring the shoreline restoration bus tour on Saturday, Sept. 16. During the 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. tour 4-5 properties will be visited. There is no cost for the event.

The Shoreline Restoration Bus Tour Flyer provides more information from the EOT SWCD and MN Department of Natural Resources (MN DNR), showing the benefits and advantages of shoreline restoration. Also outlined is how the EOT SWCD can help with property assessment, planting design and may cover up to 75 percent of the cost of installation.

Organizers want to thank the people who have already registered. The bus is almost half full. Nonetheless, there is still plenty of room for more. Registrants include County Commissioners, Otter Tail County Lake Association Members and lake property owners from Otter Tail and neighboring counties.
