Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study features a shoreline reclamation project along the shores of the Kingsclear First Nation on the Wolastoq/Saint John River in New Brunswick. What motivated this project was the accelerated loss of shoreline habitat as result of extreme weather and increased precipitation. The restoration project was completed in 2016 and helped to reduce the impact of shoreline erosion and building community resilience to climate impacts, all while creating benefits for local biodiversity. The project also achieved important cultural benefits by re-establishing access to the Wolastoq for elders and by protecting Kingclear's local ceremony grounds near the river.
