COLONIAL PIPELINE EMPLOYEES BUILD OYSTER CASTLES IN MISSISSIPPI WITH NATURE CONSERVANCY



BILOXI, Miss. – Colonial’s Mississippi team volunteers with the Nature Conservancy of Mississippi to construct oyster castles on the shores of Biloxi.

The living shoreline will create habitat for oysters, mussels, and other creatures, and it will buffer the wave energy that is eroding the shore. The Nature Conservancy has already seen the waves break on the reef instead of the bank.

Colonial partners with environmental groups in all 13 states it operates in to help fulfill its mission to protect the environment we share our pipeline with. This activity is part of that commitment. Each year, Colonial employees participate in volunteer activities with environmental groups as part of our Colonial Cares initiative.
