Dune Restoration in Seabrook, NH - Sept. 20 & 22

Published: Sep 5, 2017

Volunteers are needed to help restore the Seabrook sand dunes! Join the Coastal Research Volunteers in planting native dune vegetation to restore the dunes in Seabrook, NH. Volunteers will harvest beachgrass from areas of the dunes where the beachgrass is growing so densely that it could benefit from thinning. At the same time, other areas of the dunes have been degraded or eroded and will benefit from planting beachgrass. Sand dunes play a critical role in protecting communities during storm events. The grass we plant will help build the dunes that, in turn, will help protect homes, businesses, and infrastructure, stabilize the beaches, and provide habitat for wildlife.
