Coastal Restoration and Nature Education Study Area Opens

The Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain (LTMCP) and partners will celebrate the opening of the Coastal Restoration and Nature Education Study Area at Weeks Bayou in Ocean Springs tomorrow, at the site on the west end of East Beach.

During this project, approximately 2.3 acres at Weeks Bayou were restored as a green space for scientific and educational activities.

“This project not only improves water quality, but also provides the Marine Education Center at the University of Southern Mississippi with a wonderful outdoor learning opportunity to teach landowners and students how to reclaim and restore land in sensitive coastal areas,” said Judy Steckler, LTMCP executive director.

The restoration project was funded in part by Southern Company through the Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Program provided by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF).

Additional funding was provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The Five Star program emphasizes results-based collaboration with diverse partners, including environmental groups, public agencies, non-governmental organizations, landowners, schools, businesses and others.
