Volunteers Needed for Delaware Bay Reef Build on October 1

October 1, 2016
Delaware Bay Reef Build
2 PM- 6 PM
Dyers Cove
Dyers Creek Road
Newport, NJ 08345

Come lend a hand building an oyster reef at Dyers Cove in the Delaware Bay. The work will involve carrying bags of whelk shells to a site just off the beach. Layers and a change of clothes are recommended as it may be chillier on the Bay and the work can get messy. Gloves, snacks, and beverages will be provided for volunteers.

The American Littoral Society has restored 7 beaches following Hurricane Sandy and is now working to establish near-shore shell bars at those sites to prevent sand loss from wind-driven waves and have already established an oyster reef at South Reeds and Moores beaches.
