The Human Impact

Western Washington has a mystique. It's a unique blend of snow-capped mountains, misty rain forests, waters everywhere (an inland sea, bays, lakes, rivers), whales, elk, salmon and mild, mosquito-free climate. All Western Washington's diverse natural elements are entwined in a complex, self-sustaining order. The threads of its beautiful tapestry began to weave together about 13,000 years ago when the 3,000-foot-deep Vashon Glacier retreated.

Unfortunately, after thousands of years of perfect primal coordination, this mixture of natural wonders is falling apart.

Floating Homes and Shoreline Regulations

A View from the Sidelines

It all started with weeds.  When the Shoreline Master Program Update (SMP) came to town, I welcomed it as a vehicle for reducing the use of chemicals to control aquatic weeds. I had no idea that attending an SMP open house in late fall of 2007, would lead to meetings and workshops beginning in March, 2008, and continuing for more than a year, or that my interest in weeds would lead so quickly to concern for my beloved life afloat.
