The Credit for Going Green project team developed a toolkit to help partners share project results within their organizations and throughout their professional networks. These resources can be used to develop presentations, web content, newsletter articles, or social media posts about the project.

Tool | July 2019

This guide outlines a structured process to engage experts and develop timely, science-based solutions to environmental problems. The FAST process provides an iterative, weight-of-evidence approach for these experts to reach general agreement around technical recommendations.

Tool | July 2019

This technical memo presents guidelines for calculating the pollutant removal rate of restored or constructed buffers established on shorelines with different soils, slopes and buffer widths. This tool can help New England communities use buffers to meet water quality standards and fulfill stormwater permitting requirements.

Webinar Brief | June 2019

These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Lydia Olander and Sara Mason on June 26, 2019, summarizing results of work with the North Carolina and Rookery Bay NERRs to develop models of oyster reef and mangrove ecosystem services, efforts to apply these models to specific restoration sites at these reserves, and use of the models as a way to think about standardized monitoring of ecosystem services outcomes across the NERRS network.

Report | June 2019

This briefing document presents outcomes and findings from a science transfer project that developed and led role playing simulation exercises to help community leaders and stakeholders explore options for addressing flooding and other climate-related risks in South Carolina.

This concise checklist provides an overview of useful information for Alabama homeowners interested in installing living shorelines.

Website | June 2019

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. 

Multimedia | June 2019

This video illustrates a flooding event that affected a shoreline section of North San Pedro Road, in northern California. In this case, a large rain storm and run-off from the watershed could not drain through undersized culverts and led to road flooding.
