Shore Friendly technical assistance to shoreline landowners on Key Peninsula Shoreline landowners in the Key Peninsula receive technical assistance from the Shore Friendly Pierce program.

The Shore Friendly Pierce program provides technical and financial assistance to marine shoreline homeowners and landowners stewarding their properties with practices that benefit the health of Puget Sound. 

One challenge facing waterfront homeowners is adapting to sea level rise in the Puget Sound. Our newest workshop, presented by Andrea MacLennan from Herrera Environmental and Jeff McCord from Nickel Bros, will focus on the drivers and impacts of coastal erosion, how sea level rise can intensify erosion, and strategies and adaptations to prepare for future conditions. 

Workshop content will be split between two evening sessions on August 16, 5:00-7:00 pm and August 17, 5:00-7:00 pm. We recommend waterfront homeowners attend both sessions.

The workshop will be hosted on Zoom. Pre-registration is required:
