EarthShare NC Match Day at The Frontier

By Author Mar 21, 2018

The Frontier team getting matched.

On April 20, 2018, 10 individuals from companies at The Frontier will be participating in an Earth Day service project in partnership with EarthShare NC. Last week, a few of The Frontier’s team members attended the Match Day event hosted up on The Bridge. We got to meet all of the community agencies participating and learn more about them. There was a fun scavenger hunt involved to find out who we are matched with in April!

Our Project

Our team is excited to announce we will be spending Earth Day with Kelly Bodie of the North Carolina Coastal Federation (fun fact: Kelly works remotely at Perch in Carrboro, but visits the Frontier often!)

Our project will be preparing old oyster shells to be released back into the coastal waters, where they will be used to construct a new reef and provide a habitat for new oysters. This effort will support the 50 Million Oyster Initiative, whose goal is to restore 50 million native oysters in North Carolina waters.

Through a variety of programs and partnerships, the federation provides for clean coastal waters and habitats, advocates to protect the coast and teaches and informs people about the coast and what they can do to protect it.

The federation has offices in Ocean, Wanchese and Wrightsville Beach, N.C. To learn more, please visit nccoast.org or call 252-393-8185. Be sure to follow along on Earth Day using #ImpactNC and @EarthShareNC!
