Resilient Protection Frameworks: Maryland’s Eastern Shore

Throwe Environmental is joining the Resilient Protection Frameworks (RPF) project (led by The Nature Conservancy) to support the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland in becoming a model for resilient marsh ecosystems across the East Coast.  

At the intersection of migrating marshes and landowner resilience, the RPF initiative aims to protect cultural and financial interests within Maryland communities while also ensuring a healthy migration of tidal marshes. Together with Eastern Shore communities and topic experts, Throwe will host panel discussions and workgroup meetings to inform the development of an action plan to incentivize marsh protection, management, and restoration.

•  The Nature Conservancy: “Strengthening Maryland’s Coasts”

•  The Conservation Fund: “Blackwater 2100”

•  Land Trust Alliance: “Planning for Marsh Migration at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge”
