And Do Good: In March 2021, the Tides Inn announces plans for a shoreline restoration project, which will deepen its guests’ connection to the land, shoreline and water. The $3.6 million project includes a “living shoreline” along Carter’s Creek, beach restoration, hands-on educational programming and community partnerships. The first phase of a larger, multi-year project, this inaugural phase is slated to be complete in summer 2021.
Another important aspect of this project is the new programming it will provide. The Tides Inn Managing Director, Jason Trollip, has appointed Will Smiley as the resort’s resident ecologist. With a Master of Education in Sustainability and 17 years of teaching experience at nearby Christchurch School, Smiley knows how to create interactive and educational waterfront experiences.
As the new wetlands filter the water and provide a natural habitat for birds, aquatic life and other species along the shoreline, additional programs will be added, such as foraging for edible plants, birding tours and an expansion of the popular Tides Inn Oyster Experience.
Demonstrating its continued commitment to the Northern Neck region of Virginia, the Tides Inn will engage local community and environmental groups, such as the Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR), in this project and subsequent programming.
