Where the Water Begins: Free Workshop from the King Conservation District

The King Conservation District is holding a series of free workshops for property owners along the marine shorelines and bluffs of King County.   Beach Drive has plenty of waterfront and bluff homes that have faced recent potential issues with mud slides. 

The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about the ecological, geological and vegetation management issues associated with owning waterfront property.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding marine near-shore and riparian ecology
  • Recognizing geologic hazards
  • Using native vegetation to reduce erosion and to improve fish and wildlife habitat

Who should attend:

  • Beach property owners interested in a stable natural shoreline
  • Bluff property owners interested in reducing the potential for erosion and landslides
  • Any marine shoreline or bluff property owner interested in improving fish and wildlife habitat.

When and where:

All workshops are from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm (indoor session) and 12:30 – 3:30 pm (optional pre-order boxed lunch $12 and field trip).

Facilitators:

  • Kollin Higgins, King County DNRP WLRD
  • Peter Landry, City of Normand Park
  • Elliott Menashe, Greenbelt Consulting
  • Brandy Reed, Conservation District
