Join NERRA board member Brandon Puckett for a virtual briefing on how the NERRS advances the science and practice of living shorelines.
As the federal government strives to slow climate change by conserving 30% of America’s lands and waters by 2030, three new Reserves are under the designation process to protect America’s coasts.
A new training from Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay Reserve is helping coastal communities shift the climate change conversation to be positive and solutions-focused—even during the pandemic.

A new NERRS study compares marsh conditions across broad landscapes and at multiple geographic scales. The result? Tools for more effective marsh management, conservation, and restoration in the face of climate change.
When the COVID-19 crisis hit, it underscored the need for Alaska’s Kachemak Bay Reserve to support fisheries-dependent jobs build current and future resilience in the face of climate change and acute disaster.
