Building for Resilience

The climate crisis is here, but there are things we can do to protect what matters most. Save the Sound partners with communities for on-the-ground solutions that make the places we live, work, and play more resilient to climate change.

Our team is uniquely suited to this challenge, with more than 50 years of experience and on-staff experts in environmental engineering, law and legislative advocacy, grassroots organizing, and more, we know how to tackle the climate crisis with creativity and cooperation.

Marshes, dunes, and oyster reefs are highly effective in safeguarding us from the escalating threats of storm surges and heavy rainfall. These living shorelines offer a multitude of benefits, like filtering pollutants from stormwater and enhancing beloved beaches.

Save the Sound currently has two living shoreline projects in the works—Chittenden Park in Guilford, CT, and Big Rock Wetland at Udalls Cove in Queens, NY—and is celebrating recent victory on a bill establishing nature-based solutions as the preferred alternative for stabilizing tidal shorelines in New York. Wins like this signal a shift in our collective approach to climate resilience.

None of these wins would be possible without the support of people like you—planting native marsh grasses, calling your legislators, and keeping our experts hard at work.

You can keep this work going. Please, consider supporting Save the Sound with your time, dollars, or voice.
