  • The “Lion’s Park Public Education and Shoreland Restoration Project” consists of two principle components. The first component provides for shoreland restoration extending over 400 linear feet along a public park on Green Lake in the City of Spicer. The second component provides for education via a series of signs along designated walkways in the park, including the virtues of shoreland restoration, the types of plants used (with pictures) and why, information about exotic/invasive species, and impacts on wildlife and habitat. The overall goal of the project is to educate the public on the value and importance of shoreland restoration, while improving the natural function of the shoreline and overall aesthetics of Lion’s Park.
