Where the Water Begins:
Land Management Practices for
Marine Shoreline & Bluff Landowners

The King Conservation District facilitates workshops for property owners along the marine shorelines of King County.  These workshops are designed to provide marine shoreline and bluff landowners with information on maintaining marine nearshore and marine riparian zone ecosystems, recognizing and minimizing geologic hazards, using native vegetation to reduce erosion, and using native vegetation to improve fish and wildlife habitat.  Learn more about the June 2014 workshops.

Fifteen workshops were facilitated between 2006 and 2010. These workshops were attended by 318 marine shoreline and bluff landowners, of which 254 have requested technical assistance site visits.  The District has been and will continue to work with these landowners to help them develop plans to address the natural resource management challenges they face on their property.

These workshops are offered in May and June of each calendar year. Those who may want to consider attending include:
