Full course description
A training course for marine contractors to learn to install living shorelines for property owners, either alone or in addition to an existing seawall or other structure.
Living shorelines are softer, greener alternatives to stabilize shorelines from erosion, sea level rise, and other damage. They protect, restore, or enhance natural shoreline habitat and maintain coastal processes through the strategic placement of plants, oyster shell, and other structural organic materials. Demand for these structures is increasing, and this course offers a mechanism to increase the supply of contractors who can fill this need.
