Restore America's Estuaries (RAE), in partnership with Save The Bay - San Francisco and the California State Coastal Conservancy, is pleased to have co-hosted the second national living shorelines workshop! Thank you to all of our attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors for helping us have a fantastic event.


The final agenda is available here. The program covered the major development in living shorelines, including science, policy, outreach, and more. The program was a mix of presentation and group activities, with the primary goal being to advance the community and learn from each other in order to increase the efficacy and implementation of these approaches.
