The workshops are designed for homeowners or landowners who have property on or near a shoreline, bluff, wetland or creek.

Attendees will learn about different types of critical areas and how to best manage the buffers around them.  Topics covered include how to use your buffer area without harming it or yourself, the role of native plants, tips on removing noxious weeds, how to enhance or restore a buffer, how to encourage birds and wildlife, and what resources are available to homeowners.

“Critical Areas” have important functions in nature; filtering and cleaning water, delivering sand to the beach, providing fish and wildlife habitat, or supplying our drinking water.  Some areas may pose a potential danger including flooded creeks, eroding bluffs, and slopes prone to landslides.  Areas called “buffers” are designated to ensure everyone’s safety, protect property from damage, and to keep these important places healthy.  Buffers can be enjoyed, maintained, and even enhanced by the people who own them for better function, property values and aesthetics.
