About this Event

DNREC Wetlands Monitoring & Assessment Program is hosting the 7th annual Delaware Introduction to Living Shorelines Workshop. The workshop 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.

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.

This workshop covers a wide range of topics in depth and is intended for participants who are interested in taking the first step in learning how to design living shorelines.

Participants must attend both days in order to come, and a detailed agenda will follow shortly.
