Sandy Anniversary Planting & Clean Up

TIME: Saturday, October 20th, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
LOCATION: Meet at Beach 44th St and the beach  

For the anniversary of Storm Sandy, RWA is bringing people of all ages together to create a natural 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 project. Students can receive community service hours. No registration is required. This event is rain or shine, so please dress accordingly.

Special thanks to NYC Ferry, NYC DEP, NYS DEC, and Patagonia for sponsoring this event.
