Purpose

Robert Moses Beach Grass Planting

Sadly, Hurricane Sandy left behind a devastating impact on our local beaches.  Acres upon acres of our beaches are now threatened due to the erosion from the storm. That is why I am organizing this important beach planting event as summer nears.

The beach bayberry and beach plum plants will help stabilize and rebuild some of the sand dunes destroyed from Hurricane Sandy. In turn, the restored sand dunes will help provide a natural protection from future coastal storms.

Now its our turn to take action to restore some of what was lost last October. Please join me and your fellow Long Islanders at our first annual beach planting event on Saturday morning, May 4.

Your efforts will be vital to repairing our beaches and protecting our environment and way of life.

Location:  Robert Moses State Park Office (Just West of the Robert Moses Tower).
