Volunteers, SCDNR build oyster reef on Lady's Island
Over 50 volunteers assembled to build an oyster reef on Friday on Lady’s Island with SCDNR, Friends of Hunting Island State Park, SCORE, and the Beaufort Conservation District. The reef was built near the shoreline where the new community waterfront park is to be built near Lady’s Island Marina and the Lady’s Island (Factory Creek) Boat Landing.
This is one of many important projects undertaken throughout the year to preserve Beaufort’s waterways and ecosystem. “This reef is one of twenty projects that have been planned through the ACE Basin in the next six months alone”, said Bruce Doneff of Friends of Hunting Island.
