Vegetation Workshops for Waterfront Property Owners

Posted April 28, 2018 at 5:53 am by

The shore­lines of San Juan Coun­ty are part of a beau­ti­ful, com­plex and increas­ing­ly frag­ile marine ecosys­tem. Healthy coastal trees and shrubs help sta­bi­lize banks, pro­vide for views, and sup­port fish and wildlife. Attend a free work­shop host­ed by Friends of the San Juans to learn about cost effec­tive and nat­ur­al approach­es to pro­tect­ing water­front prop­er­ty through the improved man­age­ment of shore­line vegetation.

  • Wednes­day May 9th 5:00 to 7:00 pm Roche Har­bor Pavil­ion, San Juan Island
  • Thurs­day May 10th 5:00 to 7:00 pm Emmanuel Epis­co­pal Church, Orcas Island
  • Fri­day May 11th 1:30 to 3:30 pm Grace Church Hall, Lopez

Local and region­al experts will share infor­ma­tion about local shore­line habi­tats and marine food webs as well as prac­ti­cal infor­ma­tion on man­ag­ing shore­line veg­e­ta­tion in the San Juans, includ­ing: species and sources for native plants, plan­ning for bank sta­bi­liza­tion and views, weed con­trol, rules and reg­u­la­tions, resources and cost share pro­grams for landown­ers, and more.

Work­shops are free and open to all. For more infor­ma­tion please con­tact Tina at Friends at 360–378-2319 or
