Living Shorelines

"The use of Living Shorelines as a shoreline management practice is beneficial because they provide erosion control benefits; protects, restores, or enhances natural shoreline habitat; and maintains coastal processes through the strategic placement of plants, stone, sand fill, and other structural organic materials (e.g. biologs, oyster reefs, etc).” –NOAA

Pasco County Parks Recreation and Natural Resources Department encourages the use of Living Shorelines to protect our wetland and aquatic resources where appropriate. Further information is provided in this Living Shorelines Presentation
