Be Kind to Gilgo Day
Mid-island windsurfer/Surfrider activist Frank Messina forwards this information about a call for volunteers to help fight erosion at Gilgo, which took a pounding from storms earlier this year. If you can make it, be there!
(from the staff of Robert Moses/ Captree State Parks):
We are planning a volunteer effort to plant beach grass in the area at Gilgo where fresh dunes have been constructed. The date of the event is April 25, 2010 at 9 A.M. The meeting place is the Town of Babylon parking field. Through State Parks and Save the Beaches we have approximately 12,000 bare root plants to get in the ground. Volunteers should bring a small spade to facilitate planting. I apologize for the late notice. This date was establish a while ago for another project but as you know this issue came arose and we feel it must be addressed quickly. Any assistance your group can provide will be greatly appreciated. Hope to see you Sunday.
And as long as I'm signed on for this quick passing of the word, there was another link I wanted to share! Want to see a far more marvelous writeup of that big Vision 2020 meeting than I gave in my longwinded rehash last week? Head on over to Bowsprite!
