Score The Shore Survey, Minnesota

Score The Shore is a natural resources survey to estimate the amount of habitat in three lakeshore zones; shoreland, shoreline, and aquatic. This scoring process provides a simple method of ranking individual lake sites and the entire lake based on the amount of lakeshore remaining in natural condition. High: These sites have a very high percentage of unaltered habitat in each of the three Zones. Moderate: These sites also have a high percentage of unaltered habitat but at least one Zone has lower habitat quality than a "High" site. Low: These sites are typically developed and have a lower than expected amount of natural habitat. Very Low: These sites have been heavily altered by the removal of vegetation and related habitat.
