The Living Shoreline Collaborative, in partnership with the James River Association, is dedicated to restoring and creating living shorelines in the tidal James River Watershed. These nature-based approaches enhance the quality of local waterways and provide resilient shoreline protection. By stabilizing shorelines, conserving natural habitats, and offering ecosystem services, living shorelines are an attractive and effective solution for erosion control.

They also promote wildlife habitat and improve water quality, contributing to coastal resilience. For waterfront property owners in the James River watershed, there are various technical and financial assistance programs available. You can apply for cost share through the James River Association if you are in the Lower James Watershed.

In addition to that, there are other assistance programs available in Virginia. The Living Shoreline Collaborative organizes meetings, workshops, Summits, and site visits, providing valuable resources and opportunities for education and engagement. Be sure to sign up for the Living Shoreline Collaborative Newsletter to stay updated on their events, meetings, and resources.

Join the Living Shoreline Collaborative and the James River Association in their mission to protect and restore the James River, ensuring the well-being of thriving communities and a healthy ecosystem
