Definition of Shoreline Restoration

The shorelines of lakes and oceans are often degraded due to forces of erosion, and can be worsened when a natural shoreline undergoes development. Shoreline restoration involves returning a shoreline to its former healthy condition by reintroducting native plants and natural landscaping. This can lead to a reduction of soil erosion and runoff, as well as the restoration of habitats for birds, frogs, fish, and other animals.
