Welcome to the Lake Ontario
Shoreline Stewardship Guide!

The Lake Ontario shoreline is as beautiful to you as it is important to the animals that rely on it for survival. Birds, fish, mammals, and insects rely on the shoreline for shelter, food and resting areas. As a shoreline owner, you have the opportunity to manage your property to increase both its value to wildlife and your enjoyment of visiting wildlife.

The Lake Ontario Shoreline Stewardship guide contains tips on making your shoreline wildlife-friendly, regulations every shoreline owner should know and additional resources for shoreline habitat information, including web sites.
