DNREC: Volunteers needed for beach grass planting

1261

DNREC is looking for volunteers for its annual Beach Grass Planting. For the past 29 years volunteers hit the dunes to plant grasses to help anchor the dunes and protect them from erosion. This year 5 locations will get new grass along Delaware’s coastline. While spots are already full for the Cape Henlopen, Fenwick Island State Park, and Dewey Beach locations, volunteers are still needed at Delaware Seashore State Park and Bowers Beach locations.

Anyone interested in volunteering can sign up here. The 29th annual Beach Grass Planting is scheduled to take place Saturday, March 17th.
