TRUE BLUE Gardening

Our Choices Matter!

Gardening is an important activity for a long and healthy life.

Plus, it can help keep Torch Lake BLUE!

Keep Torch Lake and its ecosystem in mind when you choose your plants.

Go native!

Native plants have deep roots that hold soil in place and trap stormwater runoff that contains nutrients and toxins from reaching Torch Lake.

Native plants provide food and shelter for native birds, bees and butterflies.

Help keep toxins out of the lake by using water-friendly herbicides and pesticides.

Only you can help keep Torch Lake BLUE!
