South Whidbey resident Elliott Menashe will present an introductory seminar on the topic of wise shoreline and steep-slope management at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show Saturday, Feb. 23 in Seattle.

This one-hour long seminar is for marine-bluff and other topographically-challenged landowners. The focus will be on improving shoreline and steep-slope management practices. “A pound of prevention is worth a ton of riprap,” says Menashe, owner of Greenbelt Consulting. “We need to start solving tomorrow’s problems today and education is the key.” Visit www.greenbeltconsulting.com for more information.
