The Itasca County Coalition of Lake Associations (I-COLA) started the Shoreland Stewardship Award Program to recognize lakeshore owners who have implemented outstanding shoreline management practices within Itasca County. The purpose of the award is to recognize as well as promote shoreline conservation practices on area lakes. Award winners are chosen annually by the Shoreland Steward Award Committee, and presented with an award honoring their commitment to conserving the county's water resources. Award winners also receive recognition at the Itasca County Fair, at a County Commissioners meeting, and on ICTV. The Stewardship Award program is funded through I-COLA, and administered by I-COLA as well as the Itasca SWCD. If you have implemented any new shoreline conservation practices or have been maintaining an exceptional shoreland conservation practice on your property or may know someone who has been contributing to shoreland conservation practices and would like to share the success story please contact us.
