" It’s amazing to look back at where we were compared to what it looks like today. I can’t sing you and your team’s praises enough! Sam and I couldn’t have imagined a better outcome. Thanks."
Guidelines for the new SB 776 state law mandating living shorelines in VA. are still being finalized . They are expected to be published for public comment, a VA Marine Commission public meeting will also be held before final publication. Hopefully by May of 2021, we will have some clarity about the potential for this law to change the negative trajectory for our coastline development away from armoring the shoreline.

Living Shorelines: now state law
Flexamat for steeper slopes in waves
Envirolok bags for near vertical slopes
Tencate GeoTubes for high energy sites.
Anatomy of getting a project started:
Conservation Landscaping for our Bay:
Recruiting Shoreline Property Owners into the fight for the Bay
Extreme Bay History
Innovation (now a bit dated but still true in our sprited approach to finding answers)
