Record #:
A section of Wrightsville Beach that had been ravaged by Hurricane Fran is 1996 is being restored through a unique approach. The town allowed a Florida grower to harvest sea oat seeds in return for grown plants. Now over 25,000 sea oat plants are helping to stabilize and trap sand on the new dunes.
