Project Description

The project will provide compensatory restoration for recreational use losses in Alabama by acquiring approximately 100 acres of privately held land and water bottom in the geographic middle of Dauphin Island. The project will enhance recreational use of the coastal habitat by providing amenities that offer recreational opportunities to the public. These proposed visitor amenities include educational signage, fishing pier, bicycle path, parking area, boardwalks, gazebos, and public restrooms. The fishing pier and boardwalks will allow visitors access to the marsh and water.
