Trinity Center plans to558034_10151601612978304_898826670_n restore the salt marsh at Sanders Point,

a part of the conference center near and dear to the hearts of many who come here.  Human and natural activities have eroded away the marsh that acts as a natural barrier in front of Sanders Point.   Sound to Sea staff and volunteers have been bagging oyster shells  in preparation for an oyster sill that will be installed at Sanders Point. The sill will slow down waves that have been pulling soil away from the marsh.  As those waves slow, they will drop sediment suspended in the water,  building the marsh back up.  The oyster sill will also be habitat for new oysters to grow on and hopefully provide shelter for many other small sound inhabitants.

Saving Sanders Point

Our first installment of oyster shells are here! Thank you Swansboro Rotary and everyone who attended the Annual Oyster Roast a few weekends ago!  What a GREAT donation!
