New oyster reef installed by teammates along Edisto River

In July, dozens of Boeing South Carolina teammates worked alongside volunteers from Vantage Point Foundation to build a 65-foot oyster shell reef along the Edisto River in honor of The Nature Conservancy South Carolina’s 50th anniversary. With an assembly-line technique, the team placed more than 350 bags of shell in less than 11 minutes! We’re proud to help preserve and protect the Lowcountry with living shorelines to build a more sustainable future for our teammates, their families and their community. Watch this video to see the awesome work.
