The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has an upcoming volunteer opportunity at Goldbug Island – a property protected by Lowcountry Land Trust – in Mt. Pleasant to monitor the living shoreline oyster reef installed in spring of 2016. During this annual monitoring TNC will be counting oyster density, measuring oyster growth, and tracking sediment accretion and marsh vegetation growth on the backside of the reef.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old or accompanied by a chaperone older than 21. All volunteers will be required to sign a release form before work begins.
Volunteers should prepare for being in sun, mud and water. Please bring mud boots/old tennis shoes to get dirty, wear breathable clothing, and bring sunscreen, bug spray and a reusable water bottle. We will have water for refiling and gloves to share.
