Abstract: The city of Naples, Florida, has helped improve water quality by developing an ecologically friendly approach to managing stormwater where it enters a small cove of Naples Bay. With its "living shoreline" and parklike setting, the project provides wildlife habitat and attracts human visitors as well, exemplifying how even modest efforts can go a long way toward achieving natural restoration goals.
