LEED/GREEN BUILDING - WEBINAR VIDEO
SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR BANK & SLOPE RESTORATION
Sustainable solutions for bank & slope restoration allow for the stabilization of eroded or damaged slopes, riparian waterways, and shoreline banks while creating attractive, vegetated landscapes without the use of hard materials such as concrete. In this one-hour webinar, learn about various restoration and stabilization applications, and review completed projects.
BANK & SLOPE RESTORATION - WEBINAR VIDEO
USING ORGANICS FOR COASTAL RESILIENCY
In this one hour webinar, learn about the use of organics as part of
creating a resilient coastal environment. Explore the impact of
restoration applications from upland to coastline. Living Shorelines
systems are alternative shoreline stabilization techniques that help
maintain the natural interface between land and water while preserving
the habitat, protecting the environment and enhancing coastal resilience
to reduce erosion. Living Shoreline restoration applications mimic
nature, utilizing locally available, sustainable materials.
