Snohomish County MRC Member, Keeley O'Connell

Restore America's Estuaries has released a video on living shorelines. 'Living shorelines' is a term used to describe shoreline protection options which incorporate natural elements. The use of gravel, sand, plants, and large woody debris can create an effective way to protect against shoreline erosion and create new habitat. The video highlights Puget Sound, and goes in-depth on different effects and benefits of living shorelines. The video spotlights Snohomish County MRC member, Keeley O'Connell! Watch the video here
