100-1000: Restore Coastal Alabama
The goal of the 100-1000: Restore Coastal Alabama Partnership is to build 100 miles of living shoreline and plant and promote 1,000 acres of marsh and seagrass. 100-1000 has currently built nearly 5 miles of living shoreline. The two largest volunteer based projects are at Helen Wood Park at Dog River in Mobile, and at Pelican Point in Fairhope.
Mobile Baykeeper is involved because we believe that the BP Oil Disaster, our nation’s largest environmental disaster, should be answered with Alabama’s largest environmental restoration project. Our founding partnership – The Nature Conservancy, Alabama Coastal Foundation and the Ocean Foundation – undertook the Hellen Wood Park project in January of 2010 making it the first restoration project post-BP Oil Disaster.
