This year’s National Summit on Coastal & Estuarine Restoration, co-sponsored by Restore America’s Estuaries and the The Coastal Society, was held at the Gaylord National in Washington, DC. There was a definite focus on living shorelines at the meeting: dedicated sessions on the topic were available throughout the conference schedule… and you didn’t even have to change rooms!

 

The University of South Alabama provided three presentations in the living shorelines category at this year’s meeting. Dr. Scott Douglass lead us off on Monday, his graduate student Kari Servold provided a retrospective on Tuesday, and I wrapped things up in the last session of the conference on Wednesday. The citations are listed below.
