Event description

Description

Restore America's Estuaries (RAE), in partnership with the Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation (CIRCA), is pleased to announce a first-of-its-kind living shorelines event! Living Shorelines: Sound Science, Innovative Approaches, Connected Community, will feature nationally-relevant issues and discussions along with region-specific workshops.

Whether you call them "soft shorelines," "living shorelines," "soft armoring," or "soft stabilization," you belong at this historic gathering!

Why should you attend?

  • Sound Science: Get the latest updates on all aspects of current research and ongoing science.
  • Innovative Approaches: Find out what your colleagues are doing, hear lessons learned, discover the latest funding and financing opportunities, and learn ways to make your own projects and programs more effective.
  • Connected Community: Network with people from all aspects of the community to catch up with colleagues and make new connections in your region and nationally.


During registration, you will have the opportunity to include your information in a Living Shorelines Professionals directory, which will be part of the Living Shorelines Academy. The Living Shorelines Academy is an initiative that combines online resources, including interactive trainings and an information repository, with in-person gatherings to advance the knowledge and understanding of living shorelines.
