Bogue Banks Seed Collection

Earth Balance has been selected to perform dune planting for the upcoming Phase III nourishment project (anticipated early 2021).  Earth Balance will be present along the Emerald Isle beach strand in early October 2020, for less than 7-10 days.  They will mobilize on Emerald Isle to harvest sea oat seed, bitter panicum and elder cuttings.  Be advised, Earth Balance staff will pull spikelets off the existing sea oats.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Carteret County Shore Protection Office at (252) 222-5835.
