Project Description

The purpose of this project is to implement coastal stream restoration strategies in the three Mississippi coastal counties. The objectives are to reduce water quality impairments entering the Mississippi Sound, enhance ecological function, improve stormwater management, and provide residents and tourists natural areas for outdoor recreation across the Mississippi coastal landscape. Coastal stream degradation and water quality im provement are pervasive problems across the Mississippi coastal counties. This project will leverage the Coastal Stream and Habitat Initiative project funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (NFWF GEBF). The NFWF GEBF project partnered with The Nature Conservancy and Audubon Mississippi to engage stakeholders across the Mississippi landscape to examine and formulate a plan to restore coastal streams. Nine streams were targeted in Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson Counties. The outcome of the NFWF GEBF project will be a set of coast-wide restoration strategies and actions for coastal streams to improve ecosystem health, integrity, and downstream water quality. These strategies and actions will be used to inform restoration activities conducted in this project.
