Beirut Memorial Grove

City of Jacksonville

A site in Jacksonville that remembers the lives lost during the 1983 bombing of the barracks in Beirut, Lebanon is in the process of renovation.  Kelly Batchelor has more on the Beirut Memorial tree replacement.

As sea turtle nesting season draws to a close, officials are noting a below average year. This week on the Down East Journal, we speak with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission’s Sea Turtle Biologist to find out why.  And, plans to replace the trees at the Beirut Memorial in Jacksonville are underway.  The Down East Journal airs Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations.  And Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation and the City of Jacksonville are working together to improve the Beirut Memorial Grove.  Jared Brumbaugh has more.
