Best Practices for Shoreline Landscaping
Several property owners of Shoreview and Roseville Minnesota were recognized for their environmentally friendly landscaping at a recent city council meeting.

The awards are less for competition and more for exhibition. One of the main goals of the Green Community Awards is to showcase people’s yards and inspire others to try similar things for the good of the environment and to promote water quality.

Yards were recognized for their rain gardens, natural plantings replacing turf grass, pervious pavers, pesticide free gardening, and buffer strips near bodies of water.

Stormwater Pollution is Killing Coho Before Spawning - Researchers at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle worked with collaborators, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, local tribes and the Wild Fish Conservancy, to survey 51 sites from 2000 to 2011 in streams all over the Puget Sound basin. They used the survey data with a new computer model to map predicted coho death rates. The results show that in an estimated 40 percent of their range in the Puget Sound Basin, 10 to 40 percent of coho salmon die before they can even spawn because of pollution.
