WHAT DO WE DO ?
Shore Friendly Kitsap assists homeowners who are interested in voluntarily removing all or part of their old bulkhead. We connect program participants with technical support and resources to guide them towards naturalizing their beach with soft shore alternatives. We want landowners that are a part of our program to make informed, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly decisions about shoreline management.
WHAT DO WE OFFER?
- Free site visits from Shore Friendly staff.
- Free site assessments from a licensed coastal geologist to assess erosion risk on your shoreline property.
- Mini-grants of up to $5,000 for shoreline restoration work including bulkhead removal or soft-shore alternative projects (assessment, feasibility, design and permitting).
- Free education and outreach events.
- Homeowner workshops
