We Love Our Lakes: Lake Stewardship in Pope County
Client: Pope County Coalition of Lake Associations
Often times when we produce a video project, we provide design services for DVD packaging. In 2005, Instructional and Media Technologies was contracted by the Pope County Coalition of Lake Associations (COLA) to produce an informational video outlining the benefits of best management practices (BMPs) for shoreline owners.
Implementation of BMPs is crucial to ensure lake water quality. The project discussed fertilizer management, sewer maintenance and vegetation management to minimize the impact against the lake and surrounding wildlife.
Pope County features some of the most pristine and beautiful shorelines in Minnesota. This project made an impact to ensure feature generations can enjoy clean and healthy lakes.
The DVD was provided for free to all new lakeshore property owners. The DVD is also available to existing property owners from their local lakeshore association.
The album cover insert was designed using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The photograph is of Priest's Point on Lake Minnewaska, near Glenwood, Minn. I shot this image with a Nikon D70 DSLR from a helicopter while I was shooting aerial video footage for the project.
