BUILD AN  OYSTER REEF

at Helen  Wood Park on the Western Shore of Mobile  Bay

Saturday and  Sunday, January 22-23, 8am-5pm   


Come for as long as you  can, whenever you want. Be prepared to get muddy.  Must be over 14  years old to participate.  Under 18 years must be accompanied by an  adult.  

Volunteers will be placing  bagged oyster shell in predetermined locations near the shoreline, creating  over a quarter-mile of oyster reef.  Most bags weigh 10 pounds.   Helen Wood Park is located just north of the Dog River Bridge off Dauphin  Island Parkway.  Please carpool as parking is limited.

For more  information, including parking information and maps, click here <http://www.trailblz.info/ACF/gateway/21.22533.aspx> .

This project will  serve to kick-off the 100-1000 Restore Coastal Alabama Partnership,  a coalition of public and private entities working together to  restore Alabama's coastal areas, making us more resilient to impacts  from hurricanes, oil spills, and climate change. Learn more about the amazing oyster and all the benefits  it brings to our coastal environment at www.100-1000.org <http://www.100-1000.org/> .

It is possible that the project will  be completed on Saturday.  Check the website Saturday night for  updates.

If possible,  please RSVP to info@joinacf.org.   Hope to see you this weekend!
