Dune restoration to start next year in Perdido Key
Work is expected to get underway in January 2018 to restore sand dunes on Perdido Key.
Vegetation will be planted along six miles of the beach from the Florida/Alabama state line to the edge of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.
The vegetation will help restore the dunes that were destroyed by the BP oil spill and clean-up efforts.
The project is being funded with a grant from the BP settlement.
