Along Broken Point on Shaw Island, multiple landowners are working to improve the management of their shoreline. One landowner has partnered with Friends to remove her 235 linear foot vertical creosote wood bulkhead to restore the shoreline and its natural processes. The armor removal will unbury approximately 4,400 square feet of upper intertidal beach as well as 5,000 square feet of backshore. After the armor is removed native vegetation will be planted.
