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 http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/swc/Shoreline/Pages/BeachGrassPlanting.aspx

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 http://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/pg_ambr.pdf
