Working with Nature for Shorelines Workshop and Tour

October 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join our partners with the New York Sea Grant (NYSG) for an informative workshop from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2022, to provide shoreline residents and contractors an overview of shoreline management techniques with a concentration on the use of natural and nature-based features. NYSG has organized the free “Working with Nature for Shorelines” workshop in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), New York State Department of State (DOS), Save The River, and Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation District. Funding for the workshop has been provided by DEC. Register by October 14 at https://bit.ly/3QyhWyW or call NYSG at 315-312-3042 for assistance.

Workshop presentations will include an introduction to nature-based shorelines, site visits and the DEC shoreline permitting process, overviews of local Coastal Lakeshore Economy and Resiliency Initiative (CLEAR) projects, funding sources, and volunteer opportunities. Speakers include NYSG Coastal Processes and Hazards Specialist Roy Widrig, author of Working with Nature: A Guide to Native Plants for New York’s Great Lakes Shorelines.” An optional shoreline tour of ongoing nature-based shoreline restoration at Lyme Town Park will follow the workshop.

New York Sea Grant is a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York and one of 34 university-based programs in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Sea Grant College Program. Since 1971, NYSG has been “bringing science to the shore” through a network of integrated research, education, and extension services promoting environmental sustainability, coastal community economic vitality, and citizen awareness of New York’s freshwater and marine resources.
