BOYNE FALLS, Mich. (AP) - Hundreds of people are expected to attend a conference designed to encourage protection of Michigan’s 11,000 inland lakes.

The biennial convention offers networking and learning opportunities for lake enthusiasts, professionals, researchers, local government officials and others interested in protecting Michigan’s water resources.

Workshops will deal with subjects such as natural shoreline design, invasive species and riparian rights.
