The King Conservation District will host a free workshop for owners of marine shoreline and marine bluff properties on Saturday, July 22, from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Discovery Park Visitor Center.
The steep bluffs, ravines, and beautiful shorelines of Seattle provide spectacular views of the Puget Sound, but some segments of the shoreline are also prone to erosion and landslides.
The workshop will include presentations by local experts on marine nearshore and riparian ecology, recognizing geologic hazards, and using native plants to reduce erosion and improve fish and wildlife habitat.
The afternoon will include an optional beach walk where participants can take a guided tour of Vashon beaches and discuss the different ecological, geological, and vegetation management strategies covered in the workshop.
The King Conservation District is a non-regulatory public agency that provides free education and technical assistance on conservation and management of natural resources. All classes are free and open to the public.
