Shoreline Erosion Project Survey
Conducted by the Edgewater Environmental Coalition (EEC) with a Seed Grant from Friends of the Parks 

Water, wind and wave action constantly erode our lakeshore. Traditional protective measures primarily rely on concrete (grey infrastructure) to create a hard barrier. Nature-based solutions (green infrastructure) protect while creating a softer edge of beaches and dunes. EEC’s Shoreline Erosion Project will educate our community about these alternatives. Please tell us how you perceive the local dunes, their ecological value, and the benefits they provide. Your responses will be kept anonymous.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your input is greatly appreciated and will be instrumental in the successful restoration and preservation of our local dunes.
