Storm Sandy Anniversary- Rockaway Dune Restoration

TIME: Sunday October 27th 10 AM - 2 PM
LOCATION: Firehouse 59 - Beach 59th Street & Rockaway Beach Blvd

For the one year anniversary of Storm Sandy, RWA is bringing people together to create a nature protective buffer for the Rockaway community.

 As we learned from the storm, 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. Many of these dunes were compromised by the storm and need to be replenished to be effective.

Families and people of all ages are welcome to participate in this dune restoration planting & biomimicry project. Students can receive community service hours. No registration is required. This event is rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.

Special thanks to Capital One Bank for sponsoring this event.
