Conservation district educates Kirkland residents on responsible stewardship and shoreline restoration

July 9, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, King CD – The King Conservation District (KCD) partnered with Lake Washington Christian Church in Kirkland to educate residents on the importance of sustainability and responsible stewardship on June 26.

The event allowed residents to tour a 2.5-acre shoreline restoration project that was once taken over by invasive weeds. Homeowners living on streams, lakes and wetlands were invited to learn techniques for managing weeds and returning their property to a more natural state.

KCD education programs coordinator Kristen McCune and KCD improvement project assistant Ashley Allan have been working with the church to provide technical assistance, workshops and project installation for the site. The project has a 15-year lifespan and they are currently in the third year.

“The unique part about this site is that it was covered in blackberry. No one actually realized there was a stream or moving water,” said McCune.
