Shoreline Stewardship Guide
CLA and Back Creek Conservancy are preparing a guidebook to educate waterfront property owners about shoreline stewardship best management practices. The project focuses on 490 properties within the Buffer Zone shoreline of Annapolis and the Severn River. The Buffer Zone is the first 100 feet inland from the shoreline and is part of the 1000’ Critical Area. The guide will inform private and commercial property owners about how to protect their property from erosion and flooding. This project also contributes to the City of Annapolis’ climate change resiliency planning.
