Overview

The framework outlines the process of developing a monitoring plan for living shoreline and wetland restoration or enhancement projects. During this process, users select metrics that are relevant to their projects’ goals and restoration type, and methods of collecting data for each metric appropriate to their experience and resources. Finally, the publication recommends monitoring plan components in a template that can be filled out for specific projects.
