Please join Shane Godshall, American Littoral Society’s Habitat Restoration Project Manager to discuss their upcoming project designed to protect the mouth of the Maurice River. With community and stakeholder input, the Littoral Society designed, permitted, and funded a multi-million dollar project intended to protect the river mouth from continued erosion. The highest-priority vulnerabilities are the focus of this 3-year phased approach that addresses these areas; Phase I will involve the creation of a 600-foot hybrid rock revetment at the tip of Basket Flats; Phase II, the creation of 2,000 feet of hybrid living shoreline breakwaters and subtidal oyster reefs/mussel beds at Basket Flats; and Phase III, the creation of 4,500 feet of hybrid living shoreline breakwaters and oyster reefs/mussel beds at Northwest Reach. Planting the marsh edge is also anticipated along with the seeding of ribbed mussels. The project will provide resilience and ecological uplift to the river mouth by protecting the marsh and creating new habitats. The Littoral Society and its partners are currently ramping up for project implementation beginning in August.
