Wednesday, May 6, 2020. 1:00PM. Webinar: Advances in Nature-based Methods of Shoreline Stabilization. Hilary Stevens, RestoreAmerica's Estuaries. Sponsored by NOAA’s National Ocean Service. More information here.
Nature-based shoreline stabilization methods, often called living shorelines or soft shorelines, are increasingly popular among landowners but are still a fraction of the developed coastline. Restore America's Estuaries hosted a Living Shorelines Tech Transfer Workshop to bring together the national community of practice working in this field to share ideas and lessons learned. This webinar will review some of the major issues that came up during this meeting,including technological advances, policy and permitting issues, new research in the field, and barriers to implementation. The talk will include examples from around the country and links to reference materials.
