Northampton County is the southern 35 miles of a 70 mile long stretch of the Delmarva Peninsula known as Virginia's Eastern Shore. "The Shore" as it is affectionately named, is cradled by the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay or what is known locally as Bayside and Seaside. The Seaside, in particular, contains the largest island wilderness chain on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.

The Shore is a place that has somehow managed to remain relatively unchanged through the times. Its pristine condition is mainly a result of the surrounding waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the County's isolation to large East Coast metropolises such as Virginia's Tidewater Area (Virginia Beach & Norfolk). Generations of families have been left to their own and have created a rich tradition of living off the land through farming and fishing. For centuries a unique harmony, between mankind and nature, has evolved from these circumstances.

Northampton County's central location on the Eastern Seaboard places it less than a 1 day drive from areas such as New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.

Northampton County contains numerous natural and cultural sites, including two large public parks, Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge and Kiptopeke State Park, located at the southern end of the county. Historic townships, such as Eastville, Cheriton and Cape Charles contain buildings that speak to over 350 years of architectural design in the United States.

From The Eastern Shore Resource Conservation and Development Council (ES RC&D) and The Nature Conservancy

Dear Eastern Shore Community Member,

The Eastern Shore Resource Conservation and Development Council (ES RC&D) and The Nature Conservancy are in the final stages of installing a 1000-ft living shoreline project at Occohannock on the Bay Camp and Retreat Center (Camp Occohannock) in Belle Haven to protect property from coastal erosion. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate how marsh plants, sand, and limited rock can both effectively protect shorelines from erosion while also creating critical coastal habitats that support clean water and wildlife. 

We’d like to share our experience on this project with local landowners and interested citizens by inviting you to a workshop and optional volunteer work day at camp, which is located near Belle Haven. 

You are invited to a workshop about living shorelines for homeowners on Thursday, May 1st at 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., including lunch, followed by an optional opportunity to help us finish planting marsh grasses along the camp’s shoreline.  The objective of the workshop is to give landowners, community members, resource managers, and other interested persons the opportunity to see and hear about the camp’s living shoreline project and learn more about what is involved in planning, permitting, and implementing living shoreline projects on private property.  Scott Hardaway, Director of the Shoreline Studies Program at VIMS, and Walter Priest, president of Wetland Design, Inc. (and formerly of NOAA) will help us to lead the workshop and will answer questions about your shorelines during the homeowner clinic portion of the workshop. 

The agenda will be as follows:

10:00 a.m.

Overview of living shorelines for homeowners.  Topics will include:
Shoreline design, permitting process, and schedule
What/when to plant, where to get materials, and how to install
Costs and contractors

11:15

Camp Occohannock Living Shoreline Example
Project purpose, design, construction
Lessons learned, best practices
Tour the project shoreline

12:15

Lunch provided

1 p.m.                                  

Homeowner clinic
Bring pictures of the shoreline erosion problems on your property and consult with experts Scott Hardaway (Director, Shoreline Studies Program at VIMS) and Walter Priest (Wetland Design, Inc) on various management option using living shoreline approaches

2 p.m.                                  

Adjourn

2:30 to 5:30 p.m.              

Volunteer marsh grass planting (optional)

Marsh grass planting will continue on Friday, May 2nd from 2:30 until 5:30 p.m.  Participants are welcome to come for the workshop and lunch only, and encouraged, though not obligated, to stay for the planting on either dates. 

Please note that we are requesting advanced registration for the workshops and volunteer days!  Please contact Gwynn Crichton (gcrichton@tnc.org or (434) 951-0571) or Sara Reiter (esrcd.sara@gmail.com or (757) 757-710-7266) to register for one of the workshop dates. 

This project is possible through the generous support of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Community Development Foundation, the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Climate Adaptation Fund, the Chesapeake Bay Trust, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.  To learn more about the living shoreline project at Camp Occohannock, please visit The Nature Conservancy’s Virginia Program website on nature.org
