News from DNREC: Free Webinar on June 29 features Coastal Restoration Toolkit
A toolkit developed by Restore America’s Estuaries helps communities launch a coastal restoration project and is the topic of a free webinar, presented by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, in partnership with the Delaware Living Shores Committee, on Tuesday, June 29.

The Coastal Restoration Toolkit was developed to provide high‐level, introductory educational information for community members on how to develop a coastal restoration project from concept to proposal. The toolkit is a launching point for developing solutions to coastal restoration opportunities that community members see in their local areas.

Speakers for the webinar will include Hilary Stevens, coastal resilience manager, and Elsa Schwartz, senior director of restoration and administration, for Restore America’s Estuaries.

This webinar is part of an ongoing virtual series presented by the Delaware Living Shores Committee, a working group dedicated to facilitating the understanding, peer review, and implementation of living shoreline tactics within the state. DNREC’s participation is represented by the Wetland Monitoring and Assessment Program and the Delaware Coastal Training Program.
