Beautiful day on the water! We’ve missed our #waterwednesday sessions! #jamesislandcreek #elliscreek

#CWK2017 7/7. Final installment today folks! Today we’re talking about protecting and restoring our wonderful estuary “creek-by-creek.” Tidal creeks are special places shaped by the ebb and flood of the tide. They’re where we learn to fish, throw a cast net, and drive a boat. They serve as nursery habitat for local shrimp, fish, and carbs. And they beckon for quiet paddle.
.
They’re also the first place polluted flood water hits our estuary. That makes them the first line of defense and why we focus a lot of our work. Here’s a few quick hits:
.
In #ShemCreek we’re working with the @experiencemp, Mount Pleasant Waterworks and Wildlands engineering to pinpoint bacteria pollution sources and clean them up.
.
Back in February we partnered with a group of concerned citizens to help them take back #FilbinCreek. Together we mobilized 100s of volunteers, a backhoe, and a few canoes to removes to remove 1000s of pounds of debris.
.
We continued to stand strong for #GadsdenCreek defending its right to exist and holding developers accountable for following law
.
On #NewMarketCreek we hosted 3 cleanups turning out 100s of volunteers. And, no joke, 100 tires later, the City of Charleston’s most intact urban tidal creek system is looking much better
.
King Tides and harbor currents push all manner of plastic debris into the marsh around #VardellsCreek. We’ve made it an ongoing cleanup site holding multiple cleanups this year alone
.
In #JamesIslandCreek we’re working with @dhec, a group of concerned citizens, and local authorities to clean up bacteria pollution that has plagued this beautiful creek for years.
.
Tidal creeks are the bellwethers of our coastal estuary. We love them and to protect them to protect everything!
