Oyster Reef Restoration To Help Economy

More than five million dollars in recovery money will benefit workers along our coast.

The North Carolina Estuary Habitat Restoration Project will create supplemental employment for oystermen and other water-related industries to rebuild 49 acres of oyster reefs across coastal North Carolina.

It is one of 50 high-quality, high-priority projects funded around the nation's coasts by the American Recovery And Reinvestment Act.

Monday, federal, state and local partners will kick off Earth Week, by touring the oyster reef in Hatteras.
