Take your survey today
at: www.mishorelandstewards.org and click on “Rate Your Shoreland” in the upper right hand area of the home page. When you start the survey you must list your lake as Lake Charlevoix to help LCA win the contest.
As a further incentive to those who take the survey and go on to become Lake Guardians, the LCA will be holding a drawing this summer among our Lake Guardians with the winner receiving a $200 prize. Anyone who takes the survey and gets a gold rating will automatically be awarded Lake Guardian Status. Those rated as Silver can also qualify, usually by answering a few qualifying questions.
The MI Shoreland Stewards program is a statewide recognition program developed by the Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership with heavy input from the Lake Charlevoix Association, Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council and many other lake associations to recognize lake shore property owners who protect their lake through good shoreline practices.

More than 110 participants from around the lake cruised both arms of the lake picking up their 5 lucky cards, with 8 card locations to choose from. There were 9 GOLD Sponsors that sponsored the card pick-up spots and Reception. While vying for cash prizes for the best hands, a hugely successful Silent Auction offered more than 50 prizes donated by area merchants. The event concluded with a catered meal by Lake Charlevoix Catering and live music at the pavilion in Boyne City Veteran’s Park overlooking the shore of our beautiful lake. In addition to the great fundraising success, participants had FUN and met others from around the shores of Lake Charlevoix. All funds raised from this event go toward projects that help protect and sustain the water and shoreline of Lake Charlevoix.
