Oyster reef restoration

South Carolina’s Department of Natural Resources’ SCORE Program will be bringing shell and organizing volunteers on Monday, June 13, at noon for the sixth year of constructing oyster habitat on Hunting Island. Students from AMIkids will assist in the Oyster Reef Restoration Project at Russ Point Boat Landing on Hunting Island (before the Fripp Island Bridge). This labor-intensive project requires 70-80 volunteers to transfer recycled oyster shells from land to boats, and then again from boats to nearby reefs. Volunteers should wear closed-toed shoes and dress weather appropriate. SCORE staff will provide tools needed for the project.  For more information, please email doneff@verizon.net.
