As part of our annual Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue project in 2013, we took the opportunity to strengthen the shoreline against future storms by laying the foundation for new dunes. It was evident that communities that had dunes during the destructive hurricane had fared far better than those without.
Our mission was simple: assemble a bunch of stoked volunteers, gather in Rockaway, and build some dunes. Here is the story of how it all came together.
