Hardened shoreline prevents erosion. Stone rip-rap installed by the property owners in an attempt to prevent shoreline erosion. Hardened edges along the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers reduces natural shoreline habitat that fish and other marine animals depend on for food and shelter. bulkhead,protection,stabilize,habitat,vegetation,amphibian,reptile,invertebrate,insect,wetland,marsh,river,tributary,Eastern Shore,Talbot County,Maryland

Coastal Wetlands Resilience to Climate Change Comparison Coastal wetlands that are protected from erosion have an adequate sediment supply to build upwards, and will likely be more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Power lines in Shenandoah In Shenandoah National Park, electrical power lines cross through the park, and the area around them must be maintained and managed. While they are needed, they also bisect the natural areas of the park and can disturb wildlife.

Vaccinium corymbosum (Highbush blueberry) Highbush blueberry is one of the most important plants in the blueberry family. It is found around wetlands, in woodland clearings, and open meadows, and provides food for many birds and a few mammals. symbol,vector,illustration,Plantae,Ericales,Ericaceae,wildlife,shelter,nest,berry,protection,habitat

Fiber logs Natural fiber logs for sale at a local hardware store in Cambridge MD. These logs are designed to be used in constructing a natural "living shoreline", as opposed to a hardened shoreline that employs a concrete bulkhead or stone rip rap. The former creates habitat for native plants and wildlife where the latter removes habitat. jute,log,shoreline,erosion,protection,buffer,climate change,sea level rise,storm,flooding,mitigation

Shoreline erosion control Conceptual diagram illustrating a hardened shoreline vs a natural shoreline. The hardened shoreline has concrete rip-rap or a sea wall. It can be very costly and can also interrupt natural shoreline processes and sand movement that can lead to increased erosion downdrift from the structure. A natural shoreline incorporates native vegetation with a buffer strip of sand and/or fiber logs. It filters runoff and traps sediment, actually widening the beach, and providing valuable shoreline habitat for wildlife. diagram,climate change,sea level rise,flooding,protection,erosion,shoreline,buffer,rip rap,bulkhead
