Shannon Point Restoration Project Open House

Date: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Contact info: Lisa Kaufman, Program Manager, Northwest Straits Foundation

The Northwest Straits Foundation and the Skagit County Marine Resources Committee will host an Open House to share information about the Shannon Point nearshore restoration project. The Open House is free and all community members are invited to attend.The Open House will acquaint community members with plans to restore forage fish spawning habitat and improve feeder bluff function along 770 linear feet of shoreline at Shannon Point. The project will remove riprap armoring along the shoreline that impedes natural processes and has degraded the beach. Anticipated project benefits include improved nearshore habitat for Pacific sand lance and surf smelt, two important forage fish special preyed upon by salmon. The project will also improve beach access and increase the beach's resilience to anticipated sea level rise.
