\nBro wnbag Presentation

\n

\nMarch 29th\, 2022 \; 12:00PM-1:00PM

\n

\nBrownbag will be held at the Susan Shipman Environmental L earning Center @ GADNR Coastal Regional Headquarters\; \;  \; &nbs p\;  \;  \;One Conservation Way\, Brunswick\, GA 31520

\n

Please join the G A Coastal Management Program for a Brownbag Presentation from Shannon Matz ke\, a GA Sea Grant State Fellow at GADNR Coastal Resources Division\, on& nbsp\;Evaluating Best Practices in Dune\n Restoration: Vegetation Research and Monitoring on Tybee Island\, Georgia.

\n

Coastal communities ar e developing rapidly in the face of increased risks of sea level rise and hurricanes stemming from anthropogenic climate change. In the US\, erosion is projected to cost $530 million/year\n in property loss\, but beaches a nd dune systems can minimize these losses. Dunes are vital to coastal prot ection\, particularly when they are colonized by native plant species that stabilize sand with their root systems and accumulate sand by trapping pa rticles\n with their stems and leaves. Dune construction can be used as a nature-based solution to climate change\, but more studies are needed to f ully understand the best practices that should be associated with vegetati ng constructed dunes.

\n

To gain more insight into dune restoration\, a Coastal Incentive Gr ant funded team from Georgia Southern and Tybee Island conducted a 15 mont h study on Tybee Island\, GA\, the site of new dune construction. They\n e xamined the effects of planting density on plant survival and growth and o n sand accretion\, and they compared accretion rates to those on pre-exist ing dunes on Tybee and unvegetated sites on the constructed dune.

\n

While specific restorat ion strategies must be viewed through the lens of management goals\, the t eam’s findings are consistent with the literature and have proven to wor k well on Tybee Island. The results of\n this study provide a framework bo th to future restoration projects on Tybee and to those taking place in ot her coastal communities.
