Living Shorelines: Building the Resiliency Required for Reducing Catastrophic Storm Impact - 2020


Living shorelines have become central to the discussion surrounding building resilience against increasingly larger storms. In fact, coastal areas are undergoing a type of rebirth, with many converting from bulkheads to living shorelines due to their proven ability to reduce the impacts and catastrophic damage from weather events.

Join Forester University for this live, educational webinar as returning speaker Rod Tyler, President of Green Horizons Environmental LLC, reviews coastal and inland projects to demonstrate design principles used in living shorelines as well as new products and designs that may help you lessen the effects of vicious storms. With the number of epic storms continually on the rise, he will help you understand what you are up against and enable you to use better tools to combat them.

If you are a progressive, change-oriented designer, engineer, consultant, landowner, or other stakeholder—and even if you took last year’s iteration of this course—then you will be sure to come away from this session with valuable insights based on Tyler's most recent, cutting-edge projects!

Learning Objectives
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn what a living shoreline is, the function it provides, and its benefits versus traditional hard structures
  • Understand the underlying law related to living shorelines, including federal guidelines
  • Discover key design principles behind using various types of living shorelines, which include vegetation selection, slope design, containment, energy dissipation, filtration, retainment, use of locally available native materials, and reinforcement using man-made products
  • Explore common areas where new tools may be used to help landowners reduce the impacts of storm events
