This program is designed to educate landscape professionals about the vulnerable nature of marine shorelines and provide guidance and instruction on how to better initiate, design, and implement successful landscape and restoration projects on upland buffers, shorelines, steep slopes, and beaches. Expanding your skill set in this area will allow you to meet the growing demand for this type of service, implement successful projects, create happy customers and positive word-of-mouth, increase your company’s market share, avoid regulatory problems, fines, and lawsuits, and improve public trust in the landscape industry to meet these environmental needs.

The public is being educated about the need for better management of shorelines and steep slopes, resulting in rising public demand for professional services. This is an optimal time to train landscape professionals in the specifics of designing, planning, and installing projects on marine shorelines and other sensitive areas.
