“Life abounds within the area we know as the “shore land buffer”. Many species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies and bees use this area as home sites or as feeding and foraging areas. Learn who may be living along your shore and what kind of vegetation they need for food and cover.”
