Living Shorelines

Did you know living shorelines help support resilient communities?

You may be asking…what is a living shoreline?

Living shorelines connect the land and water to stabilize shorelines, help reduce erosion, and provide valuable habitat that enhances coastal resilience. A living shoreline is a protected, stabilized coastal edge made of natural materials such as plants, sand, or rock. Unlike concrete seawalls or man-made hard structures, these living shorelines grow over time and provide a natural habitat essential for fish and can help protect from the effects of hurricanes.
