Community Outreach | Beach Grass Planting

Volunteer opportunity this weekend to help with the Beach Grass planting hosted by DNREC.  We will gather in Lewes at 9 AM, rain or shine, and will be given our area to plant.  While the weather might not be the best, some of us will be there to help DNREC out to get our battered dunes replanted with new beach grasses.

28th Annual Beach Grass Planting
Saturday, March 18, 2017
9 a.m. – Noon

Locations: Meet at the end of Savannah Road on the Lewes Beach

Each March since 1990, many dedicated volunteers have helped DNREC to build and protect Delaware’s sand dunes by planting Cape American beach grass on Delaware’s ocean and Delaware Bay beaches. Their efforts have been very successful in helping to reestablish the vegetation along our coastline. Our plan is to plant beach grass in various bare areas, to help stabilize existing dunes so that they may continue to grow.

Hope to See You There !
