The American Littoral Society will celebrate Earth Day, with a dune grass planting on Saturday, April 21, and two beach clean ups on Sunday, April 22.
The dune grass planting will take place a day ahead of Earth Day and is the culmination of our Beach Grasses in Classes program. Everyone is invited to help plant American beach grass on Sandy Hook dunes from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 21. The planting will take place near Lot B. The location is subject to change due to the possible chance of nesting migratory shorebirds.
If possible, please bring a stick or shovel to help with planting. Event will be held rain or shine. Dress for the weather.
