Living Shoreline, DuPont Nature CenterPDE wins award for work with living shorelines

Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) recently took top honors for its work with living shorelines.

The American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) awarded PDE and agencies in Texas, Louisiana, and Virginia as winners of the 2019 Best Restored Shore award. The award was for “implementing creative solutions to eroding shores, rising seas, and degrading environmental conditions,” ASBPA officials said. The ASBPA specifically recognized PDE’s work with a living shoreline project at the DuPont Nature Center in Milford, Delaware.

Projects from other organization in Texas, Louisiana, and Virginia also took honors. Restoration Programs Manager Dr. Joshua Moody will accept the award on PDE’s behalf on Oct. 23 at the 2019 ASBPA National Coastal Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
