Learn to protect your shoreline
Island County residents can learn how to protect and maintain their shoreline property during a free workshop 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 3 at the Coupeville Recreation Hall.
Workshop topics include slope stability and habitat, how and why beaches and bluffs change over time and shoreline permitting and regulations.
Participants will also receive information on free site visits by a private shoreline management professional to learn how to protect their property.
The event, hosted by the Northwest Straits Foundation and the Island County Marine Resources Committee, will feature a presentation by Jim Johannessen, a coastal processes expert, and an educational beach walk. Please bring clothing appropriate for the weather and sturdy shoes for the beach walk.
