Eroding bluff
The Whatcom Marine Resources Committee is hosting a workshop tailored to coastal landowners on Saturday, June 9th from 9:00 am - 1:30 pm.  The workshop is free and open to the public.  Topics to be covered include proper bluff management, coastal processes, using native vegetation to increase stability, shoreline permitting, and tools/resources available for landowners.  There will be a field component to the workshop at Pt. Whitehorn which will be led by coastal processes expert Jim Johanneson.  Jim will identify examples of, or opportunities for, proper bluff management.  While the workshop is tailored to landowners living adjacent to a bluff, anybody interested in coastal processes and stewardship is welcome to attend.  Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.  The workshop will be held at the Birch Bay Community Bible Church at 4460 Bay Rd, Birch Bay.  To RSVP or for questions, please email mroberts@co.whatcom.wa.us or call (360) 676-6876 ext. 50259.  Download the workshop flier here
