Shoreline homeowners around Island County want to protect their properties while also protecting the fish, wildlife, and shoreline habitats of Puget Sound. In the video below, local residents and a coastal geologist share about the environmental, recreational, and aesthetic benefits of natural and restored beaches.
The goal of the Island County Shore Friendly project is to promote alternative strategies for shoreline residential properties that provide both the use and enjoyment of the property while promoting and maintaining the nearshore ecosystems for the support of fish and wildlife.
