The Green Infrastructure Work Group of the Climate and Resilience Community of Practice recently published living shoreline resource catalogs for each of the five Gulf Coast states. The purpose is to direct different audiences to living shoreline resources related to design and construction, permitting, and cost. Target audiences intended to use the catalogs include environmental consultants, engineers, and landscape architects; installation contractors and suppliers; realtors and property developers; researchers; resource managers and local land use planners; and property owners.

The work group also created two-pagers to help communicate to specific audiences why they might be interested in living shorelines.  Three short films share the benefits living shorelines provide.  Get all the materials from For more information, please contact Renee Collini at
