This is an illustrated talk on a habitat restoration project undertaken at Lower Lake in the Shaker Parklands, a project of the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership. The volunteers identified over 20 invasive plant species along the lake shore, and began replacing these invasive plants with plant species native to northeast Ohio. Increasing biodiversity through native plants provides insect food for nesting and migrating birds. Early on in the project, the volunteers excavated the remains of the Shaker Lakes Canoe Club building and uncovered not only the original foundation, but also a great deal of history about boating life on Lower Lake in the early to mid-20th century.
