Forester and consultant Elliott Manashe gave a talk on best bluff management practices Wednesday, Oct. 30.
The event, put on by the Coastal Watershed Institute and partners, drew more than 100 local landowners to the old Dungeness Schoolhouse to learn how to best slow bluff erosion.
Manashe said owners should think long and hard before removing trees to enhance the view. Instead they should seek to retain and promote native bluff vegetation. That includes the trees, the shrubs and the grasses.
Lawns? Maybe not the greatest idea.
The workshop was the second in a three workshop series.
