Development impacts (e.g., habitat loss, pollution) are affecting the health of and ecological services provided by shorelines across Atlantic Canada. Fortunately, there are science-based tools and best practices to help minimize the impacts of new developments and restore shoreline ecosystems of previously-developed sites.
Plans are underway to customize the BC-based Green Shores® program to Atlantic Canada so waterfront owners can better enjoy their property and organizations working on shorelines can make better decisions.
If you are a waterfront property owner or an individual working on shorelines we’d like to hear from you! By participating in a short survey you can help bring shore-friendly solutions to Atlantic Canada. Be sure to complete the survey by February 28, 2020.
