The Lakes Environmental Association will hold an educational walking tour Aug. 6 on Woods Pond Drive.

The tour will cover relatively inexpensive practices homeowners can take to minimize erosion along the watershed.

The Lakes Environmental Association has led an intensive erosion control project in the Woods Pond Watershed to prevent algal growth caused in part by soil erosion. Partners in this project include the Town of Bridgton, local road associations, and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

The free tour will demonstrate practices such as buffer planting, covering bare areas with mulch, installing runoff diverters across driveways, roof runoff prevention, and pathway improvement.

The tour starts at 9:30 a.m. at 95 Woods Drive. It covers roughly two-tenths of a mile and will last approximately two hours.
