Community Dune Planting

TIME: Sunday, September 28th, 12 noon to 2PM
LOCATION: Firehouse 59 - 5803 Rockaway Beach Blvd, Rockaway, NY 11692

Come join RWA in creating a natural protective buffer of dunes along the east end of the Rockaways. 

As we learned from Storm Sandy, the natural vegetation and dunes that exist off our shores served as a protective buffer to the homes and businesses that exist in these areas. Join us in planting shrubs and trees native to the area at this event.

Families and people of all ages are welcome to participate in the planting. Students can receive community service hours. Registration is not required. This event is rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.

Special thanks to NY State DEC and National Fish & Wildlife Foundation for their support.
