Berte will be promoting ACF’s 100-1000 Partnership ,  Oyster Shell Recycling program and several pro-active natural resource activities and projects the Foundation leads in the region.

Literally, “connecting Alabamians” to the treasure that is our coast, ACF plans to hold additional fundraisers/educational programs in October including  local  events in Tuscaloosa and Auburn.

The Back Forty event is free.  For every beer sold that evening $1 will be dedicated to programs at the Alabama Coastal Foundation.
