Shoreline Planting: Future Center for Coastal Protection and Restoration
June 3 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
The North Carolina Coastal Federation invites volunteers to help protect shoreline, one plant at a time. Join us at the site of our future headquarters, the Center for Coastal Protection and Restoration! Volunteers will plant salt marsh grasses to help protect the shore from erosion and create habitat for marine life.
Volunteers should wear weather-appropriate clothes that can get wet and dirty. Closed-toe shoes that cover the foot and can get wet and muddy are required. Volunteers should also bring a water bottle, hat, sunglasses and any medications they may need. Snacks, water, sunscreen, bug spray, gloves and planting tools will be provided.
This event is limited to 30 people and registration is required. This marsh grass planting event is part of a living shoreline project. For more information on living shorelines check out the Living Shorelines Academy. The Living Shorelines Academy is an online exchange of information that encourages the use of environmentally friendly erosion control practices to protect valuable waterfront property.
