Stewardship Centre of British Columbia (Green Shores Project to protect natural shorelines for ocean and fresh water as follows:)

“How does Green Shores benefit property owners and land managers?

  • By increasing accessibility of shorelines, eliminating drop-offs and walls, and creating opportunities for strolling, kayaking, foraging and similar beach enjoyment.
  • By beautifying shorelines, adding native vegetation, and habitat for fish and wildlife.
  • By making shorelines more secure against erosion and flooding.
  • By offering financial benefits such as technical assistance, reduced permit fees, and tax incentives.
  • How does Green Shores benefit the environment?
  • By preserving and restoring physical processes: the natural movement of water and sediment that maintain healthy shorelines.
  • By preserving and enhancing shoreline habitat for both plant and animal communities, and biodiversity.
  • By preventing or reducing pollution of the aquatic environment.
  • By reducing cumulative impacts: the small individual effects that add up to large impacts on shoreline environments.” – Stewardship Centre of BC
