The New York City Chapter had a great time at RISE's first dune planting for the Greater Rockaway Coastal Enhancement Plan! This project is to enhance dunes along the Rockaway Peninsula to provide flood protection for the local community. We planted bayberry, serviceberry, Carolina rose and Virginia creeper.
You can read more about the project and how to get involved here.
We're looking forward to future dune planting days!
