Science You Can Use: Sustaining New Jersey Marshes for Coastal Resilience 

Join us for a FREE hands-on workshop that will give you the opportunity to apply new research on nature-based solutions to managing for coastal resilience.  Facilitated by research scientists, multi-disciplinary teams of workshop participants will use recently collected data and a suite of on-line tools to produce management plans for a local saltmarsh site.  

The two workshops will provide the same content, but will feature different case study areas.  You can register for either of the workshops by clicking the links below.

Workshop Purpose:

To convey how ongoing research informs the understanding of:

  • How do saltmarshes aid coastal resilience?
  • How can salt marshes be sustained into the future?
  • What management tools and best practices are available for aiding decision-making on nature-based and other management strategies?
  • How might we apply them locally? 

This workshop will help you design shovel-ready projects to be competitive for funding and to demonstrate the priorities for undertaking specified management interventions at particular locations.

Coastal decision-makers will gain a better understanding of the benefits, costs and trade-offs to restoring and sustaining tidal salt marshes for our back-bay coastal communities.

Who should participate

Municipal, county, state and federal coastal decision-makers, including: municipal and county planners and officials, park and floodplain managers, state permitting officers, consultants, NGO staff, contractors.

Work across professional silos to gain different perspectives – a great networking opportunity!
