The sun sets over Mobile Bay at Helen Wood Park, Sept. 6, 2014, in Mobile, Alabama. More than 500 volunteers gathered at the park January 2011 to build a quarter-mile oyster reef, placing 16,000 bags of oyster shells along the shoreline to help rebuild the damaged coast following the 2010 BP oil spill. The initiative was part of the “100-1000: Restore Coastal Alabama” project, sponsored by the Alabama Coastal Foundation, Mobile Baykeeper, The Nature Conservancy, and The Ocean Foundation. The group plans to build 100 miles of oyster reefs and plant 1,000 acres of marsh grass to prevent erosion and protect the “nursery environment” for the continued proliferation of vulnerable sea life.
