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. 

Pierce Conservation District's Shore Friendly Pierce program connects waterfront landowners with the technical support and resources to make informed, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly decisions about marine shoreline management. 

We offer free, non-regulatory site visits and erosion assessments to help you identify problems or opportunities specific to your stretch of the shoreline. Our goal is to help you manage your land with confidence, so that the generations to come will enjoy it as much as you do.


Contact us if any of the following apply:

1. I have a natural shoreline with no existing hard armoring, such as a bulkhead or rock revetment.
