Volunteers needed! DNREC is sponsoring a dune grass planting…

Volunteers needed!  DNREC is sponsoring a dune grass planting to assist our battered beaches throughout the state. 3/23/13 at 9AM.  The Delaware Chapter 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.  See picture below.

Register with DNREC here but choose Delaware  Seashore State Park as your desired planting location

Check the Chapter’s Facebook Page for an event here.

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
