Shore Friendly Pierce

Shore-Friendly Pierce - 2

As a waterfront landowner, you are deeply connected to Puget Sound. 

You are also deeply invested in your property.

Shore Friendly Pierce assists marine shoreline landowners in keeping their shoreline natural and unarmored, or voluntarily removing all or part of their old bulkhead.

We offer:

  • Free informational site visits and recommendations,

  • Assistance navigating the permit process, and

  • Mini-grants to assist with shoreline native plantings, bluff drainage, soft shore stabilization, and qualified bulkhead removal projects 


Contact our Shorelines Program Manager

Pierce Conservation District can help direct you to resources for Puget Sound Shorelines and help you make informed decisions for your property.
