This lesson encourages students to make evidence-based conclusions about the impacts of development, pollution, and climate on the Los Penasquitos Lagoon in southern California.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project where a multidisciplinary team, led by the San Francisco Bay Reserve, is bringing together key stakeholders and decision makers to initiate adaptation planning for a portion of China Camp State Park. 

Report

As part of the 2010 Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines project, the project team conducted this forensic analysis of six sites on the Hudson River to study how each site responded to severe storms. 

Tool

This two-part document is a guide for Florida homeowners considering installing a living shoreline on their property and believe their project is exempt.

Report

This manual describes methods employed by a 2015 Collaborative Research project team to dissipate wave energy along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. 

Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Jennifer Plunket of the North Inlet-Winyah Nay Reserve and Robin Weber of the Narragansett Bay Reserve on July 17, 2018 summarizing results from their assessments using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).

Case Study

This case study profiles the 2015 Climate Scenario Planning for the Kenai Peninsula Science Transfer project led by the Tijuana River and Kachemak Bay Reserves.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.

Journal Article

This article describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project in Exeter, NH that studied adaptive governance and climate change adaptation planning by evaluating stakeholder involvement in a local institutional setting.

Report

This document summarizes the "Successful Adaptation Part II: Strategies, Pathways, and Evaluation" workshop hosted by the Kachemak Bay Reserve from April 20-21, 2017 in Homer, Alaska.

Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Annie Cox of the Wells Reserve on June 21, 2018 about her 2016 Science Transfer project that sought to help businesses in Maine self-assess their resilience to disaster.

K-12

This art collection is the result of work by 3rd-6th graders and stemmed from a climate resilience workshop hosted by the Tijuana River and Kachemak Bay Reserves as part of a 2015 Science Transfer project 

Multimedia

This art contest, hosted by Kachemak Bay NERR during its 2015 Science Transfer project, included entries from 25 artists featuring different artistic expressions, perspectives, and reflections on climate change and resilience.

Website

This website houses the Rapid Assessment Protocol for assessing the physical and ecological performance of nature-based engineered shoreline structures. You can also access additional resources associated with the Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project, including demonstration site case studies along the Hudson River. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project that is developing and field-validating rapid assessment protocols for physical and ecological functions of ecologically-enhanced shorelines.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").

Multimedia

This webinar, which originally aired on December 12, 2013, discusses the Tijuana River Reserve's collaborative efforts to develop a vulnerability assessment that informs an adaptation strategy to address sea level rise and riverine flooding.

Factsheet

This factsheets describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the four Northeast reserves used CCVATCH to conduct vulnerability assessments of coastal habitats in their reserves. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Science Transfer project that is mapping carbon stores in Kenai Peninsula wetlands and exploring opportunities for engaging local stakeholders in valuing wetlands. 

Journal Article

This paper, published in Biological Conservation, describes an innovative approach developed by the NERRS to evaluate the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea levels rise.
