COMMUNITY NEARSHORE WORKSHOP: ELWHA RESTORATION and the CITY OF PORT ANGELES SHORELINE: ARE THEY LINKED?

September 27, 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Coastal Watershed Institute (CWI) and partners are collaborating with the City of Port Angeles to present a community workshop, September 27, 6:30 pm at The Landing Mall conference room to discuss the functional linkages of the Elwha dam removal to our nearshore, bluff and beach processes, and reoccurring management issues of  the City of Port Angeles, including the landfill shoreline.  The meeting is part of an ongoing effort to promote dialogue and understanding on wise long term stewardship of our critical nearshore resources.

This will be the first of a series of CWI led community workshops with partners, including Clallam county, Washington Department of Natural Resources, Washington Department of Ecology, Earth Economics and Washington Sea Grant . Together we are working to understand the nearshore environment through new data on high precision bluff erosion and quantifying economic values of ecosystem services. The work includes significant public outreach with landowners and the general public to increase public and landowner understanding of bluff erosion processes and ecologically sound management options, and inform the SMP update process.
