We need your help to plant dune grass in Bradley Beach, NJ.
The Jersey Shore Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and American Littoral Society will hold a dune planting event in Bradley Beach on Saturday, Jan. 28. 2017 at 10:30 a.m. Participants should gather at the pavilion on 5th and Ocean Avenue.
Last spring, hundreds of volunteers came out to help us plant thousands of dune grass plugs on top of the dunes on the beach in Bradley Beach. It was a great success and we want to expand the dunes further this time.
Planting dune grass is more than an excuse to get out on the beach during colder months. Dunes are crucial for protecting beaches and nearby communities during storms and providing habitat for all sorts of coastal life. Dune grass is the glue that holds dunes in place and helps them grow.
In addition to the dune grass planting event, there will be a simultaneous beach cleanup in support of the Rise Above Plastics campaign.
If possible, please bring a stick or shovel to help with planting. If you can’t, we have plenty to lend. Dress for the weather.
The rain date will be the following day, Sunday, Jan. 28 at the same time.
