As a waterfront landowner, you have a special connection to the Puget Sound.
Thurston Conservation District’s Shore Friendly Thurston program is designed to connect waterfront homeowners of Thurston County with the technical support and resources to make informed, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly decisions about their shorelines.
We offer free, non-regulatory site visits and assessments to help you identify problems or opportunities specific to your stretch of the shoreline. Our goal is to give you the tools to make the best decisions for your shoreline.

You can also check out our Stewardship Resources for shoreline-specific guides and publications.
