Living Shoreline

The GLO is working to raise awareness on the use of living shorelines as alternatives to traditional erosion prevention and shoreline stabilization methods.  The GLO, in partnership with Allen Engineering and Science, recently hosted a series of living shoreline workshops that educated attendees on living shorelines, how they can be used on their property and how the GLO can help during the living shoreline permitting and installation process. 

The material presented and referenced at the workshops can be found below.

An officially GLO Living Shoreline website is in development and will be available in late 2019.
