The wet and cloudy weather didnt stop about 75 volunteers- more a gathering of friends and family of all ages, as they dug the sand and planted the new beach grass.
when that was done, everyone went west from the “boardwalk”
In all, about 150,000 plants were placed, three times the amount we did last year! When they plants take full root, they fortify, almost solidify, the sand dune into a hardened barrier against storm waves, harder to wash away than just a pile of sand.
What a great day where neighbors literally planted the future protection of our town in the newly built up dunes. Thanks To All who helped! Thank you to Town of Hempstead and Town employees who have done a great job at our beach and made it all happen!
