What is Shore Friendly King County?
Shore Friendly is a program under the Puget Sound Nearshore Ecosystem Recovery Project, which is run by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and in partnership with the Estuary and Salmon Recovery Program.
There are Shore Friendly programs around the Sound, each focused at a watershed and regional scale. For King County, including Vashon and Maury Island, Shore Friendly is run by a collaborative.
