Free Workshop for Shoreline Property Owners and Managers September 24th
Interested in learning more about your shoreline property and how it can help feed salmon, seabirds and orca? Join engineering geologist and shoreline erosion management expert Jim Johannessen of Coastal Geologic Services and nearshore habitat biologist Tina Whitman of Friends of the San Juans for guidance on protecting your shoreline investment into the future.
