Vegetation Workshops for Waterfront Property Owners
Posted April 28, 2018 at 5:53 am by Tim Dustrude
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding for the workshop, as well as site assessments and re-vegetation projects, generously provided by the WA State Salmon Recovery Funding Board, the Wheeler Foundation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
