Kitsap Salmon Tours
Saturday, November 5th, 2022 – Chico Salmon Viewing Park
We had an amazing time at Kitsap Salmon Tours! Thanks to everyone that came out to Chico Creek and stopped by to chat with us. Shore Friendly Kitsap is part of Kitsap County’s Department of Community Development in the Planning & Environmental Programs division, which means we were in great company. Visitors also learned about the County’s Start Here! program, the 2024 Comprehensive Plan Update, and maybe most importantly, ways we can all support salmon, along shorelines and everywhere else! Check it out: Habitat Spotlight: Riparian Buffers.

National Estuaries Week
September 19th, 2021 – Kingston Public Market
On September 19th, 2021 we joined forces with Stillwaters Environmental Center and Mid-Sound Fisheries in recognition of National Estuaries Week. Our organizations shared a booth at the market while raising awareness about the importance of our estuaries.
Stillwaters Environmental Center hosted a beach walk and Mid-Sound Fisheries focused on estuary importance to salmon. Shore Friendly Kitsap shared shoreline restoration information and had a sign-up for shoreline homeowners interested in site visits.
