https://www.hrnerr.org/estuary-training/trainingtopic/susta...
Contact  Emilie Hauser
emilie.hauser@dec.ny.gov
Location  Virtual Public Outreach

The 1.5 hour webinar is for professional shoreline design consulting engineers, landscape architects, restoration practitioners, natural resource managers and municipal officials and other coastal shoreline property owners.  The webinar covers then preliminary designs of 2 nature-based shoreline projects on the Hudson River, at Piermont and Kingston. Professionals from HDR Engineering and SuperMass Studio municipal representatives, and project managers  will present on stakeholder engagement, site assessments, future sea-level, design objectives, 30% conceptual plans, permitting considerations, implementation strategies and estimated project costs. HDR and  SuperMass used conceptual designs created by landscape architecture students in Cornell University’s  Climate Adaptive Design Studio to produce 30 percent designs. 

For Piermont, design goals emphasize protection and stabilization of existing shorelines; development of shallow water habitat features and provision of recreational access. A combination of “nature-like” engineering features include the reconstruction of an existing submerged jetty to promote wave attenuation and shore protection.

For Kingston Point, designs include creation and enhancement of intertidal and subtidal habitats, nature-based shoreline protection using live stakes, and structural strategies to protect the beach. Both projects take sea-level rise into account. 

Join the webinar here >>

Objectives

Participants will understand future conditions; creation & enhancement of habitat; physical, social & permit constraints; stakeholder engagement and reasons for selection of living & structural components, including sizing & concrete edge design.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas. We welcome people with disabilities to all of our programs. Please call the contact number ahead of time to let us know your specific needs and we will be happy to learn how we can best serve you.

We would appreciate receiving feedback from our users. Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties viewing or using this calendar by sending an email to the DEC webmaster.
