We cannot achieve our
goals without your help! We welcome anyone who is interested
in seeing the Gulf shoreline and public beaches restored, whether
you own property on the island or not.
But particularly if you own property on the West
End, know that you are most at risk during this time of rapid erosion.
It is important that you:
Council meetings to stay abreast of what's happening on the
island and ask for projects to help restore the shoreline in the
meetings and express your support for shoreline restoration.
