In 2016, construction of a 610 foot living shoreline at Carolina Beach State Park was completed. This living shoreline was constructed by creating an oyster bag sill with regular breaks for fish passage. This site was also planted landward with Spartina Alterniflora and Spartina Patens marsh grasses. The project began in 2015 and was completed in 2016, and restored approximately 0.3 acres of shoreline.
