The Restoration Explorer is a web based mapping tool that allows communities and their partners to examine what types of living shorelines are most appropriate for a particular location. Utilizing the Restoration Explorer during the initial steps of developing a shoreline stabilization project can help communities identify where greener options are applicable – allowing them to respond to shoreline erosion while maintaining and/or enhancing the health of coastal habitats.
South Carolina coastal communities are facing more frequent flooding from sea level rise and storm events. In response, they are identifying ways to visualize and reduce risk to their communities using natural infrastructure like coastal wetlands, beaches and dunes, living shorelines, and river floodplains.
