On February 20th, the Freeport Middle School National Junior Honor Society helped move approximately 500 bags of oyster shells to spread across over 20 feet of shoreline. Their efforts helped to create a natural reef for our bay, and assists in protecting and preserving the shoreline. Along with using recycled oyster shells, it helps filter the water in the most natural way.
