Description: 

The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has created a summary about living shorelines. Living shorelines connect the land and water to stabilize shorelines, reduce erosion, and provide valuable habitat that enhances coastal resilience. They describe their purpose, benefits, and why they may be a innovative and cost-effective technique for coastal management.
