Restoration

ShoreRivers is a leader in designing, funding, and managing major restoration projects on agricultural lands, on public county-owned properties, in urban areas, at schools, colleges, and churches, and with private landowners to reduce the sediment and nutrients that pollute our waterways.

We have in-house technical expertise and work with engineers, contractors, local governments, and landowners to implement strategic restoration projects throughout our watershed.

Shore Rivers is certified by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation as a Technical Service Provider.

We have brought dozens of innovative, strategic, pollution reduction projects to our communities, including:

  • installing Maryland’s first nutrient removing bioreactors on agricultural land
  • planting over 10,000 native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers 
  • growing 200,000 oysters for sanctuaries on the Wye River, in Langford Bay on the Chester, and near Love Point
  • installing living shorelines 
  • installing 27 acres of wetlands and 350 acres of native riverine buffer as part of the Natural Lands Project
  • retrofitting much of the stormwater infrastructure at Chesapeake College and Gunston School
  • initiating a multi-faceted conservation drainage program for the Eastern Shore
