“Living shoreline” is a broad term used to describe a range of nature-based approaches to stabilize a shoreline. Living shorelines can be used instead of seawalls or bulkheads to reduce erosion, protect property, provide fish habitat, and improve water quality. This video is part of a series of living shoreline resources to help stakeholders across the Gulf find information on design and construction, cost, and permitting. All of the materials are available at: gulflivingshorelines.com.
This project was led by the Green Infrastructure Work Group of the Climate and Resilience Community of Practice and is part of a larger project funded by a capacity building grant from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Gulf Research Program.
