DCM, N.C. Coastal Federation work to restore Permuda Island Reserve shorelineVolunteers work at Permuda Island

N.C. Division of Coastal Management Wilmington staff and Coastal Reserve staff joined the N.C. Coastal Federation this week to restore part of the shoreline on the Permuda Island Reserve in Stump Sound. Volunteers helped remove an old causeway and bridge on the island, planted marsh grass along the shoreline and built an oyster reef with bags of recycled oyster shells. In time, the bags will attract young oysters and grow into a healthy oyster reef that will provide marine habitat, and the salt marsh seedlings will help protect the shoreline from erosion.

DCM staff who participated in the event were Debbie Wilson, Tara Croft, Heather Coats, Robb Mairs, Jason Dail, Holley Snider, Caitlin Hamer and Hope Sutton, along with the Southern Reserve sites’ two summer interns, Brent Dober and Tyler Lockamy.

The N.C. Division of Water Resources provided funding for the project.
