Shoreline Landowner Resources

Shoreline landowners are stewards of ecologically important real estate. The Jefferson MRC and Northwest Straits Foundation Shore Friendly Program continue to share educational resources and co-sponsor workshops for landowners, addressing questions about coastal geology, sediment movement along the shore, the role of feeder bluffs, causes of erosion, vegetation management and ecologically appropriate options for stabilization. Our goal is for more homeowners to understand how shoreline processes work so they can choose the best options for protecting their properties while promoting healthy shorelines.
