Please visit the Shoreland Restoration Project located on the Lake Management land on Highway J in front of the DD Tavern (on the Mill Lake section of Lake Beulah). Fifty feet of shoreline were planted with an average depth of 7 feet. A variety of native plants with about 20 different species were planted. This project was funded by the LBPIA under the guidance of Audrey Greene from Walworth County. Planters: Marge Harvey, Patti Nolan, Tiger Bienstadt and Frank Rappold. Jim Butler and Lynn Carlson for allowed us to use their watering facilities.
