Can I extend my yard space into the adjacent wetland?

No, these natural areas should not be disturbed and should remain in their natural state. Any disturbed wetland areas should be brought back to their natural condition and reseeded with native wetland plants per BGMC 18.280. Any ongoing activity in a wetland area will result in code enforcement action and potential fines. For further information please, contact Sam Crummett, Planning Supervisor, at 360-342-5042.
