This course will focus on implementation of erosion control solutions along shorelines and streambanks in areas of tidal influence. Participants will learn how sustainable strategies can influence public and private projects and how to overcome the challenges of working in waters influenced by tidal action. Content will address the effects of salinity, fluctuating water levels and the importance selection of plant species. The presentation will also guide participants on how to replicate living shoreline in freshwater environments.
Identify the causes of bank erosion in intertidal zones.
Develop and implement vegetation strategies in tidal zones
Assess erosion control product applicability for challenging site conditions.
