An effort to create 100 miles of oyster reefs and 1,000 acres of marsh in Mobile Bay is set to begin.
The project is scheduled to start Saturday morning. The goal is for volunteers to place 23,000 bags of oyster shells just off the bayfront shoreline of Helen Wood Park, creating the first quarter mile of reefs.
The 100-1,000: Restore Coastal Alabama Partnership calls Mobile Bay one of the largest potential areas for restoration, replacement and enhancement of lost habitats on the northern Gulf Coast.
The joint project is sponsored by the Coastal Foundation, Mobile Baykeeper, the Nature Conservancy and the Ocean Foundation.
