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 qualifying 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 for qualifying parcels,

  • Guidance on minimizing your contribution to erosion on your property,

  • Assistance navigating the permit process for bulkhead removal,

  • Mini-grants to support shoreline stewardship, including native plantings, drainage improvements, and qualified bulkhead removal projects
