Plant Beach Grass With NYC Parks

NYC Parks is looking for a few good vollies. Join Parks on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27 from 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. in protecting and stabilizing new dunes in Rockaway. Dunes are essential for protection against damaging coastal storms. Beach grass helps to increase the size of dunes by trapping windblown sand and its fibrous root system strengthens dunes by keeping sand in place.

Volunteers will plant beach grass along the crest of the dune (streets to be announced). Please dress in warm, comfortable clothing and sturdy shoes, and bring a reusable water bottle and snacks. There will be no place to store personal items.

Space is limited and pre- registration is required. This event is rain or shine. Planting dates are subject to change. Please check the website the day of the event to confirm. The registration email is duneplanting@parks.nyc.gov.
