Living Shorelines~~Stewardship Class Series

2:00 - 4:00 pm.

 

Coastal erosion is a natural process caused by currents, wave action, wind, storms and even boat wakes. The traditional methods used to harden the shoreline like seawalls and rip rap can often increase coastal erosion and remove the ability of the shoreline to carry out natural processes. The class is for residents and homeowners and will discuss living shorelines vs. harden shorelines, how to evaluate a shoreline by considering the physical factors such as wave energy, prevailing wind and wave direction, vegetation, and soil type, and present living shoreline methods, materials, permitting, and share success stories of local living shorelines. We will also look at types of plants to plant and visit a local living shoreline. The lecture is free. The class will meet at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve, 108 Island Drive in Eastpoint. To register visit https://livingshorelinesanerr.eventbrite.com.
