A two-day workshop for practitioners, engineers and landscape architects who intend to incorporate natural shoreline stabilization tactics into their business. This workshop has been postponed until fall, 2020.

The 7th annual Introduction to Living Shorelines Workshop is hosted by the DNREC Wetland Monitoring & Assessment Program. It focuses on designing projects for specific goals and begins with an introduction to the science behind living shorelines with a follow up on creating functional designs.

The workshop is free. Participants must attend both days of the workshop, March 18 and 19.

Day one of the workshop participants will learn about the causes and types of shoreline erosion, define the habitats which are affected by shoreline erosion, and understand the key elements to create a sustainable habitat for the plants and wildlife that call these areas home. Day two of the workshop will delve into site evaluation, designing for the goal, living shoreline materials, and permitting. Over the course of the two days, participants will also visit field sites.

Preregistration is required. For more information, contact Brittany Haywood.
