  Quinn Whitesall, the Habitat Restoration Coordinator from the American
Littoral Society Coastal Conservation was today’s guest speaker. 
The American Littoral Society promotes the study and conservation of marine life and habitat, protects the coast from harm, and empowers others to do the same.

Since 1961 we have empowered people to care for the coast through advocacy, conservation, and education. We not only provide a voice for the coast, but also give concerned citizens the knowledge and tools they need to raise their voices with us. When we restore habitat, our objective is not only to restore a dune or rebuild an oyster reef, but also to motivate people to invest “sweat equity” into a piece of the coast, take ownership and become committed stewards. When we educate, we don’t merely provide books, CDs, or handouts. We lead students young and old into the water to get their feet wet and their hands muddy. Sitting at a computer or reading a book, people may develop an interest in the coast; standing knee deep in sea foam with sand between their toes, they will develop a passion for the coast.
Currently working on the Maurice River Project (Basket Flats). Protection is needed. Still raising funds for phase 3.
You may also volunteer for Horseshoe Crab tagging which takes place in May/June!
