From planting sea oats and building dunes to keeping the water garden at the Nature Center clean and refreshed for visiting fauna, the Environment Committee is tireless in finding appropriate ways to build natural habitat and better present our treasured island to the visiting public.
The SCORE oyster reef building project continues to be an annual opportunity for volunteers to lend a hand an back to a vital environmental project. Oysters do more than provide a tasty meal. The filter feeders help maintain the water quality of our creeks and provide habitat among the shells for countless small creatures. Our oyster shell recycling collection station at Russ Creek landing is a vital part of the effort.
