Inland Bays Waterfront Property Guidebook

Owning a waterfront property can present challenges for individuals who want to preserve both this unique environment and their personal investment. Some of the most common questions we receive at the Center are related to preventing or managing flooding and erosion, as well as best practices for promoting sustainable living and maintaining vegetation.

We’ve created a guidebook that will provide guidance on how to protect your piece of paradise along with practical strategies that you, the homeowner, can implement to do your part in enhancing the Inland Bays and their surrounding watershed.
