Nature-Based Shoreline Approaches in Cold Climates

July 13, 2022

1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Location: Online

Nature-based shoreline approaches are more prevalent in the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Gulf regions, but this is changing for many Great Lakes and New England communities. As these areas are starting to use these approaches more frequently, they can benefit from discussions about the techniques and performance in colder climate regions.

This webinar focuses on how cold climate regions are advancing the science and use of nature-based shoreline approaches. Learn about two projects that 1) identified Great Lakes nature-based shoreline techniques and considerations; and 2) conducted monitoring to provide a greater understanding of the effectiveness, impacts, benefits, and limitations of living shoreline approaches in New England. Both projects will share local examples and resources.
