PINE KNOLL SHORES, N.C. (WNCT) – A new oyster reef is headed to Pine Knoll Shores.

Volunteers gathered Monday afternoon to construct the reef. It’s a part of the ongoing effort to protect the shoreline from erosion while creating habitat for marine life.

The oyster larvae also clean the water.

If you missed Monday’s event but want to get involved, there is another event on September 1st.
