WHY PLANT A BUFFER?

Vegetative buffers are a protective barrier of plants between a landscape and a water body that help improve water quality by filtering nutrients, sediment and pollutants before they reach the water. They provide wildlife habitats for birds, butterflies and even fish. To create a shoreline buffer you can choose from a wide variety of native plants. Planted buffers of up to 50 feet will help restore and protect Lake Agawam.
