SHORE Dune Planting
TIME: Sunday, April 19th, 11AM - 3PM
LOCATION: Meet at Firehouse 59; 5803 Rockaway Beach Blvd, Rockaway, NY 11692
Come join Rockaway Waterfront Alliance along with partner organizations, Catalyst and Gibney Dance for a community volunteer day culminating in a celebration of caretaking of the land and water.
The event will begin with some light refreshments, storytelling, and a walk over to the planting site at Beach 49th street. From there the planting will commence.
For this dune restoration we will be planting shrubs and native grasses to create a natural protective buffer of dunes along the east end of the Rockaways.
Adults and kids alike are welcome to participate in this event. Dress accordingly.
Registration is not required but students looking to do community service hours are encouraged to bring paperwork from their schools.
