A Longer View of Living Shorelines: Combining Habitat Conservation and Coastal
December 1, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The term “Living Shorelines” represents efforts to stabilize estuarine shorelines with natural habitats instead of hardened structures. In the United States, the habitats most frequently utilized include salt marsh and oyster reefs. Using data from a decade-long research and monitoring effort, the seminar led by Carolyn Currin of the NOAA Beaufort Laboratory and broadcast to Murray Hall on the UNC campus, will address a number of questions about the “Living Shoreline” approach.
