    Spring Lake Dune Grass Planting and Beach Sweep!

    410 Ocean Ave Spring Lake

    Come join Surfrider Foundation: Jersey Shore Chapter as we plant dune grass and keep the beaches of Spring Lake clean!

    Since the fall of 2013, the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the Jersey Shore Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has made it a priority to aid in repairing the coastal dune structures on New Jersey’s coast. The purpose of these dune grass planting events is to use ecologically sound tactics to protect coastal towns from future storms. Once the dune systems mature, the plants themselves and their extensive root systems trap and hold sand creating a natural barrier to major storms and flood. They also create natural habitat for many species of wild and native flora and fauna, adding to the beautiful landscape for which the Jersey Shore is known!
