Attention contractors, consultants, landscapers and others doing shoreline protection work. Property owners are welcome. Please register for the upcoming workshop on May 23rd at Weeks Bay Reserve, 11300 US 98 between Fairhope and Foley just west of the bridge over Fish River. The workshop runs from 9:30am to 1:00pm and includes lunch.

Living shorelines is a term used to describe environmentally friendly shoreline stabilization techniques. Demand for these types of shoreline protection projects will continue to grow as more people learn about the cost and environmental benefits of living shorelines. Businesses familiar with living shorelines will position themselves to take advantage of this emerging market. Learn from local experts on topics including: an introduction to living shorelines; site suitability, design, and permitting considerations; cost estimates; and an introduction to free assistance programs and resources for contractors and property owners.
