Oyster reefs are being made of recycled oyster shells in Murrells Inlet. The beds are being made by volunteers and members of Coastal Conservation Association South Carolina, South Carolina Oyster Restoration and Enhancement and the state Department of Natural Resources. The reefs improve water quality, control erosion and provide habitats for more than 120 species. The next reef build is set to begin at 9 a.m, July 29, at Belle Isle Marina in Georgetown.
