Beacon's Ridge

In the Summer of 2023, Native Shorelines designed, permitted, and installed 1,346 linear feet of low-profile offshore sill for the Beacon’s Reach Homeowners Associations in Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina. Designed to protect the community’s marina, existing bulkhead, and eroding fringing marsh, the living shoreline was constructed from our proprietary QuickReef® living shoreline system. QuickReef® units are composed primarily of natural calcium carbonate materials and are arranged in the intertidal zone in a patent-pending arrangement to both attenuate wave energy and enhance both motile and sessile fauna habitats. Once colonized by oysters, the offshore sill will be a living oyster reef that resiliently and naturally protects the community’s assets while maintaining its height relative to future sea levels.
