Free Educational Events Help Marine Shoreline and Bluff Property Owners Manage and Protect Land

The steep bluffs, ravines, and beautiful shorelines of Vashon Island provide spectacular views of the Puget Sound, but they are also prone to erosion and landslides. On June 4th, from 9:00am to 3:30pm, the King Conservation District will hold a free, educational workshop for landowners on marine shoreline and bluff properties. This workshop will be held at the Vashon Maury Island Land Trust and will bring local experts to discuss marine nearshore and riparian ecology, recognizing geologic hazards, and using native plants to reduce erosion.

This workshop will also include a beach walk portion where participants will take a guided tour of Vashon beaches where participants can discuss and learn about different strategies of ecological, geological, and vegetation management.

The King Conservation District is a non-regulatory, non-enforcement organization that provides free education and technical assistance on natural resource issues. All classes are free and open to the public. To register call (425) 282-1949 or send an email to
