About the Event

Join us in planting native dune vegetation to restore a fragile habitat on Plum Island! Dunes provide a sand source to nourish eroding beaches, protect inland infrastructure by acting as a barrier to storm surges and flooding, and serve as habitats for wildlife. Come learn about dunes, get sandy, and have fun!

Parking is provided at the public parking lot at Plum Island Point, a short walk from our planting area

What to bring

Dress for the weather: sturdy shoes, hat, jacket (it can be windy on the coast). Equipment, gloves, tools, and light snacks will be provided.
