The triple bottom line benefits of green infrastructure and other ecological approaches to flood management and erosion control are becoming increasingly important given the trends in heavier precipitation events, increasingly intense storms and sea level rise. This webinar will feature a team of ecologists, engineers and planners who have been working with NJ coastal communities for the past two years on strategies to help minimize flood risks, protect fish & wildlife habitats and strengthen overall community resilience to coastal flooding.

Speakers include:

  • Stacy Small Lorenz, Ph.D., Climate Adaptation & Resilience Specialist, National Wildlife Federation
  • Jon Miller, PhD, Research Assistant Professor, Stevens Institute of Technology
  • Linda Weber, AICP, PP, Resiliency Director, Sustainable Jersey and the Sustainability Institute at The College of New Jersey

 This webinar has been made possible through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the “Building Ecological Solutions to Community Coastal Hazards” program administered by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.
