The pleasure of living on waterfront property also brings with it a set of stewardship responsibilities. They are important to protect your property as well as the waters and wildlife around you. Washington State University offers a Shoreline Stewards website for those that live on or near the waters of the Salish Sea region. It provides a wealth of knowledge about such topics as how to manage water runoff, reduce erosion and landslides, and safely prune trees for a view. Click on the link below to visit the web site.
