Coastal Program Highlights

Building capacity and expertise within the conservation community

Maine | 2014

The Coastal Program has a broader impact on conservation through our capacity building among partners and communities. Through this type of technical assistance, we are helping communities to make better decisions and build more successful restorations.

Land use changes can often affect stream habitats through erosion, sedimentation, and pollution. To balance the need for development and conservation, the Coastal Program developed training to improve the science and delivery of stream restoration. In the Advanced Stream Simulation Design Course, participants learn how to design road-stream crossings that maintain fish passage, support stream processes, and improve public safety.
