Cocoa Beach Living Shoreline

Commission

2020

Rhizolith Island as a Living Shoreline for Cocoa Beach Florida. Here, we are implementing the islands along one of the canals adjacent to McNabb Park. The city needs a floating living shoreline to help bring back Mangroves and oysters. We are working to accomplish both!

The drawings reflect what we anticipate will be the growth of McNabb Park over many years once the mangroves are fully grown and the oysters have created a cleaner environment in the water with a more diverse ecosystem.
