Volunteers are needed! 3/23/2013 9 AM Dune Grass Planting
The Delaware Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has sent out the following letter requesting assistance in replenishing our beach dunes with sea grass. Join in with this valuable effort to save our Delaware seacoast:
"DNREC is sponsoring a dune grass planting to assist our battered beaches throughout the state. The Delaware Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation wants volunteers to help at the Indian River Inlet, North Side. Specifically, we will be planting in Savages Ditch, about 1/2 mile north of Indian River Inlet. Park at the Savages Ditch Bayside Parking area, and plant on the dunes on the oceanfront. FOR THOSE OF YOU WITH KIDS – THIS WILL REQUIRE WALKING ACROSS ROUTE ONE. This time of year that’s probably not a big deal.
Register with DNREC here but choose Delaware Seashore State Park as your desired planting location
Check the Chapter’s Facebook Page for event info and to connect with us.
If anyone has a surf tag, you can drive on the beach right there at Savages Ditch.
Here is a primer on the plant we will be planting. Instructions included http://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/pg_ambr.pdf
Thanks! We hope to see you there.
