Daniel Island Trail, Charleston


This NOAA living shoreline projected funded the stabilization of an eroding shoreline and degraded salt marsh in Charleston. The site provided the benefit of possessing high recreational value for the public, which aids in increasing awareness of living shorelines. Archaeological remnants of a post Cival War freedman's settlement are protected here by an oyster reef and the sediment that has been deposited behind it. This oyster sill has facilitated the colonization and spred of native marsh grass for further shoreline stabilization. 


Funding partners and agencies for this project include the City of Charleston and NOAA.
