Shells & Shores: A Coastal Restoration Project
Dec 2 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

JNOLA and the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is excited to have you join us in Buras, LA! Launched in June 2014, CRCL’s Oyster Shell Recycling Program recycles shell from participating New Orleans-based restaurants and uses that shell to restore oyster reefs and shoreline habitat across Coastal Louisiana. As a volunteer, you will help prepare the shell for a future restoration. Volunteers will place the recycled shell into bags that will later be stacked on barges and transported to oyster reef restoration sites. By helping prep the shell, volunteers will play a role in creating a new oyster reef that will allow for the growth of new oysters, create new fish habitat, and act as a wave break which will knock down storm surge and allow new land to build up behind the reef.

JNOLA will provide transportation from the Goldring-Woldenberg Jewish Community Campus in Metairie (3747 West Esplanade Ave., Metairie) to Buras, LA at 7:30 a.m
