Around Campus: Living Shoreline
For years, the practice of shoring up an eroding shoreline with a wooden bulkhead or stone rip-rap was widespread on the Bay. Bulkheads’ vertical walls don’t provide the living spaces for plants and animals that natural shorelines do. By constructing this living shoreline – a protective stone sill with sand filled in behind it, planted with bay grasses – we are preventing erosion and creating a place where plants and animals can live.
