Resources for Shoreline Landowners
Shore Friendly Kitsap assists marine shoreline homeowners who are interested in voluntarily removing all or part of their old bulkhead. They’ve just produced a wonderful video that explains why this idea makes sense to waterfront homeowners. Kitsap and Jefferson County have similar shorelines, so you can really visualize what might be possible. See the video at http://shorefriendlykitsap.com
Free shoreline landowner workshops (picture on left) help landowners understand more about coastal geology, including sediment movement along the shore, the role of feeder bluffs, vegetation management and better options for protecting structures. Our next workshop will be offered in 2017.
Digging for Dinner (photo at top) is another popular event offered every summer in partnership with WA Fish and Wildlife. This public program provides instruction on safe and sustainable shellfish harvesting.
