March Volunteer Opportunities
29th Annual Beach Grass Planting
Saturday, March 17, 2018 - The Planting O'the Green!
9 a.m. - Noon
Locations: Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay Coasts
Description: 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.
