About this event

The Saco Watershed Collaborative is please to co-host the first of six online webinars in the Environmental Protection Series of 2022! Living Shorelines focus on the use of a combination of natural materials to protect coastal property. In contrast to traditional hard armor, living shorelines provide solutions that are both attractive and habitat friendly. During this session, Mr. Baker will discuss his direct involvement in the design and construction of living shorelines projects along the Maine coast.

Fee: $10 per webinar - nonrefundable.

Zoom Link: Will be provided to you upon registration in the automatic follow-up email towards the BOTTOM. We look forward to seeing you!
