Blue Heron Shoreline Stewardship Award Program



The Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association (VCLRA) awarded our BLUE HERON Shoreland Stewardship Award at our  “Celebrate the Lakes Day” on June 9, 2017 at Nicolet College in Rhinelander. Chuck and Karen Hayes of Carlin Lake are Vilas County lake property owners who modeled the attributes for which this award was established. Chuck and Karen have worked hard to maintain their shoreline property in a more natural state with minimal environmental impacts.


Congratulations to: Chuck and Karen Hayes of Carlin Lake!





The Blue Heron Shoreland Stewardship Awards Program was created by the Vilas County Lakes Association to provide local lake organizations the opportunity to recognize lake property owners who have been conscientious in the development and use of their waterfront property to minimize environmental impacts. These awards will also create awareness, educate lake property owners on the importance of shoreland stewardship, and showcase good examples of lake-friendly waterfront development.

This award was established for a threefold purpose: first to provide lake associations with the opportunity to nominate and recognize property owners on their lakes who have worked hard to maintain their shoreline property in a more natural state with minimal environmental impacts. Secondly, to inform lake property owners about the many ways
that negative impacts of shoreline property development can be minimized. And third, to educate lake property owners about how important shoreline biodiversity is to the overall health of their lake.


The award criteria are divided into five sections: driveway and parking areas, structures and septic areas, yard and recreation areas, shoreline area and an overview of the entire lot area.

Local Vilas County lake associations and districts are encouraged to nominate property owners on their lake who have worked hard to maintain or restore their shoreland.
