Deadman's Island, not just a final resting place!

Anastasia got to spend time on the boat to help Heather Reed with Socialize for Education on the Deadman's Island shoreline restoration project!

Dune, oyster and seagrass restoration is helping decrease the amount of erosion at this coastal site and protecting the historic site for future generations! A snippet from Anastasia:

"By working with organizations to preserve and restore ecosystems, the biodiversity of Intertwining ecosystems and species are obtained. Deadman’s island is home to many plant and animal species however, if the shoreline continues to erode, many of these species will lose their home and may not have other places to go. That is why the Deadman’s Island restoration project works so vigilantly to preserve and observe the ecosystem of the island.”."
