Living Shoreline Tour – Stratford Point

Living shorelines help dissipate wave energy, allowing sediment deposition such that protective tidal vegetation can take root, thereby providing both wildlife habitat and shoreline protection.  CAFM presented a guided tour of the artificial reef balls living shoreline project constructed at Stratford Point in 2013.  The tour was given by the Sacred Heart University research team that helped pilot the project.
