Please join us for a 2-day hybrid training course for marine contractors, landscapers, local governments, coastal homeowners and others to learn about living shorelines and how to install them.
Living shorelines are softer, greener alternatives to stabilize shorelines from erosion, sea level rise, and other damage, and can be installed either alone or as an enhancement to an existing seawall or other structure. They protect, restore, or enhance natural shoreline habitat and maintain coastal processes through the strategic placement of plants, oyster shell, and other organic materials.
The course will include three formats: on-line lectures (to be completed in advance of course); virtual group activities (Day 1); and in-person field trips/site visits (Day 2), for approximately 16 hours of learning. Instruction will be provided by Florida’s top living shorelines experts, and includes a Training Manual, distributed in advance of the class.
CEU may be available through Construction Industry Licensing Board.
$50 registration fee includes all learning modules, Training Manual (hard copy and electronic), In-Person Site Visits with drinks/snacks (Day 2), and other participant materials. COVID safety protocols will be followed for the in-person Site Visits
Registration closes April 2 to allow attendees time to complete virtual lessons in advance of course. Late registrants may not receive hard copy of Training Manual in advance of course.
Participation in this workshop is contingent upon acceptance of application. Please complete the form below and you will receive information on completing registration.
