DNREC holding ‘living shoreline’ workshop for Contractors, Landscapers, Engineers in Lewes


Next week in Lewes, DNREC is sponsoring living shoreline workshops for engineers, contractors and landscape professionals interested in learning about the popular and eco-friendly shoreline management technique. Topics include site evaluation, design, permitting, and site visits.  Living shorelines are engineered using plant material, shellfish, and sand to prevent erosion, reduce wave energy, trap sediment and filter runoff while maintaining a natural looking habitat. There are two workshops, March 6th and 7th. It’s free to attend, and lunch is included.

Space is limited to 25 workshop participants per day, and participants may attend one or both days. To sign up, visitwww.deshorelineworkshop.eventbrite.com. Participants currently working in Delaware will be given preference. For more information, please email communications@inlandbays.org.
