The “Not In My Back Yard” (NIMBY) Shoreline Network is an initiative of The Wetlands Project to connect individuals and businesses with information that could influence important decisions regarding shoreline management on private property.
NIMBY plays on the famous “Not In My Back Yard” reaction that is often heard in response to development and conservation projects alike. In this case, NIMBY refers to a reaction against hardening shorelines with armor rock or bulkheads when a simpler and potentially less expensive natural approach works just as well, if not better.
