This article, published in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment in 2018, synthesizes oyster restoration projects since 1964 on the US Atlantic and Gulf coasts and suggests a restoration paradigm to prioritize investment in sites that maximize economic and ecological benefits and minimize construction costs.
The collaborative research project, Re-engineering Living Shorelines for High-Energy Coastal Environments, produced four datasets as part of their assessment of liviing shoreline installations at GTM Reserve in Florida.
This webiste provides a summary of and resources related to an October 2018 workshop at the GTM NERR in northeastern Florida.
This factsheet discusses the potential for gabion-breaks and other living shorelines to dissipate boat wakes and protect shorelines.
This report summarizes key findings from a 2019 workshop in New York that examined the potential ecological and physical impacts of constructing a surge barrier to protect the New York/New Jersey Harbor.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the October 2019 panel webinar Conceptualizing and Designing Collaborative Science Projects. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains panelist advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams.
This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.
These video modules introduce the conceputs and vocabulary of estuary ecology using American Sign Language. Five videos are available for the following topics: Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.
This Master's thesis examines sediment accumulation in two disparate coastal environments, including the Hudson River Reserve, as part of a larger research project about marsh formation and resilience, sediment movement, and the potential impact of dam removals.
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.
These videos clipls illustratre the interactive games that were developed for visitor center touch screen dispalys.

This experimental study by Ada Bersoza Hernández and Christine Angelini informs the design of more durable wooden stabilization structures in coastal environments.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the Living Shorelines panel webinar on April 11, 2019.
This dataset includes a suite of measures of ecological and physical functions of built sustainable shoreline structures at a set of demonstration sites along the Hudson River.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Maggie Pletta of the Delaware Reserve on March 12, 2019, about the development of new, innovative visitor displays at three reserves, partnering with students at the University of Delaware to produce gesture-controlled, educational computer games.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is conducting a collaborative, scientific modeling investigation to improve oyster population sustainability and management on Florida's Atlantic coast.
This video describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve where researchers installed a new living shoreline design to protect shorelines from boat wakes.
