Description:

The North Carolina Coastal Federation invites community members and volunteers to build a 60-foot oyster reef along the shoreline of the Sunset Beach Town Park. Volunteers will be placing the bags along the shoreline at low tide to build one of the oyster reefs for the living shoreline project. The reef, along with additional oyster dome reefs and salt marsh plantings, will form a living shoreline to help protect the park from erosion and create valuable habitat. Volunteers are needed to haul and place the bags of oyster shells and granite along the shoreline and stack them to form the new reef. The event is suitable for adults, organized groups and supervised children over the age of 12.
