HUNTING ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Personnel from Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort are removing debris from Hunting Island State Park as part of a beautification project.

The Marines from Wing Support Squadron 273 are deploying with heavy equipment on Friday to help remove uprooted trees and debris from the island.

The Beaufort Marines have worked with park officials on erosion control and environmental restoration for nearly two decades.

Park Manager Daniel Gambrell says local residents, visitors and the military who use the park all benefit from the Marines’ work.

Gambrell says their efforts not only make the park more beautiful, but also safer because state workers don’t have the heavy equipment required to clear away the debris.
