The workshops will provide an overview of how to implement a living shoreline along the Texas coast. Agenda topics will include:

  • Step-by-step guide on how to select the right living shoreline for your site
  • Overview of the permitting process
  • Explanation of how coastal boundary surveys are conducted
  • Real-life living shoreline installation stories from people who’ve completed the process

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.
