The Reef Design Innovations for Living Shorelines project, led by Dr. Kathy Boyer at the EOS Center, aims to develop innovative new designs for living shorelines. Living shorelines are constructed nature-based shorelines that enhance habitat and shoreline protection. The project aims to reduce the need for heavy, expensive installation equipment using modular, lightweight, and easily portable materials. This project is funded by the State Coastal Conservancy and is a collaboration between local experts from EOS, the Studio for Urban Projects, Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, Environmental Science Associates, and the Conservation Corps North Bay.Then next reef fabrication event will be held on July 7 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Come join in the fun and bring all of your Ikea assembly skills to bear for a good cause.
The event will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 (join us for however long you can). It will be held outside, near the EOS Center greenhouse.
