Minnesota Shoreland Management Resource Guide

Shoreland Management home page

Anyone who owns property on, uses, manages, teaches about, or in some way cares about Minnesota’s lakes and streams will find useful information on the Minnesota Shoreland Management Resource Guide Web Site. The site contains educational materials that can be used to foster shoreland stewardship at the local level. It features a range of documents from general to technical on a variety of subjects related to shoreland management. Sections include:

  • Quick and Easy Answers: over 25 documents and fact sheets that answer frequently-asked questions about shoreland.
  • In-Depth Information: detailed documents, including several recognized by the Minnesota State Legislature as important for shoreland management.
  • Citizen Pages: citizen accomplishments and images of case studies.
  • Glossary: definitions of technical terms, agencies, and acronyms often found in shoreland publications.
  • Additional Resources: links to other Web sites, such as the Minnesota Lake Association site, which offers a bibliography of educational materials and other useful information.
  • Who to Contact: an interactive Minnesota map that allows you to click on your county to identify who to call with shoreland questions. It also includes state and federal contacts.

The Web site was made possible by a grant to the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program from the Minnesota State Legislature through the Board of Water and Soil Resources. A multi-disciplinary steering committee guided the project and is responsible for content.
