The Beach Grass planting on Saturday was a really nice, “feel good” event. Artie Holgerson makes the work easy with a heavy hole digger that works like a hot knife in butter. The next step was placing the grass into the holes, tamping down that sand and feeling good about making a contribution to this beautiful shoreline. We met on the Lewes Beach with lots of other people who helped transform and protect the dunes on the bay. In this picture is Al Gratz is planting the grass.
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 !
