Vegetation Management for Shoreline Landowners 2018

Vegetation Management Workshop: A workshop for shoreline property owners to learn about coastal geology and how to manage your landscape for slope stability and wildlife habitat.
Wednesday, October 17, 2018; 5:30pm-8:00pm
Meadow Room at the Four Springs Lake Preserve,
585 Lewis Lane, Camano Island


Shoreline landowners on Camano Island are invited to attend a FREE workshop on coastal processes and shoreline erosion management using native vegetation. Camano Island's marine shorelines support marine food webs and the local economy. People who live and work on shoreline properties have a large role to play in their protection and restoration. Ben Alexander from Sound Native Plants and Lisa Kaufman from the Northwest Straits Foundation will highlight the why and how of effective landscape management at this workshop designed specifically for shoreline landowners.

The workshop is made possible with funding support from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Marine Nearshore Grant Program and the Habitat Strategic Initiative and US Environmental Protection Agency. In partnership with the Island County Marine Resources Committee.
