Mid-Atlantic Living Shorelines Summit

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Chesapeake Bay Trust, and Restore America’s Estuaries hosted the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Living Shoreline Summit, which explored the state of the science, policy, and practice of living shorelines in the Mid-Atlantic.


The Summit was a two-day working meeting focused on highlighting the latest advancements in living shorelines research, implementation, and policy, as well as promoting dialogue and addressing barriers to implementation. There was an energizing mix of presentations and facilitated breakout sessions designed to broaden participants’ ability to implement projects and programs more effectively.
