ASBPA announced the winners of the 2020 Best Restored Shores (BRS) award on 14 September 2020. This award has three goals: First, to boost recognition of the importance of shoreline restoration for building coastal resilience to climate change; second, to acknowledge the teams that put the hard work necessary to complete a project that delivers; and, third, to advance others’ capabilities and success. In this article, winners of the BRS award and the BRS Award Committee share their thoughts based on their project experience. Follow this advice and you too can implement a great coastal natural infrastructure solution and, perhaps, find your team on the receiving end of this award.
