Planning in the Face of Climate Change
Design and Permitting for Nature-Based Storm-Damage Protection Measures for Duxbury Beach
The Reservation is in the midst of a large-scale planning effort to protect Duxbury Beach. With help from a $131,000 grant from Mass Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and experts from the Woods Hole Group, we are analyzing, planning, and permitting for different projects over the next 10 years. Cobble berms on bayside, dune and beach nourishment, salt marsh restoration, and access road repair are on the agenda.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on February 12 to hear from Woods Hole Group Coastal Scientist, Elise Leduc, and DBR Executive Director, Cris Luttazi, about the challenges facing Duxbury Beach today and how we are working to strengthen the beach.
