LIVING WITH WATER
Help Pedestrian Access & Wildlife at the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA


The Battleship NC site experiences flooding during most high tides, and not just during storms, but even during sunny-days. The Living with Water project aims to preserve the Ship experience and wildlife by:
1) Restoring 800 feet of hardened shoreline with an intertidal estuarine living shoreline.
2) Restore the approximately 2-acre flood-prone area of the Battleship's back parking lot with wetland habitat.
Living shorelines and wetlands help protect communities as well as fish and wildlife by buffering the effects of coastal storm surges, tidal flooding and stormwater runoff. They protect community assets, local economies, and historic and cultural values. They also provide educational opportunities through contributions to science and transferability of resiliency concepts.
 
The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA is a powerful symbol of our gratitude and pride for those who served in World War II and for all who serve in our nation’s armed forces and their families. It is North Carolina's memorial to the more than 11,000 North Carolinians who died during World War II.  And, the Battleship is an economic engine for tourism, jobs, and the economy, attracting more than 200,000 visitors each year.

Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
