Event description

Description

Help us restore our dunes! We’ve teamed up with Surfrider Foundation to bring you beach restoration fun in the sun.

A $10 donation to Surfrider includes a free tank top and all supplies necessary for the restoration. For those 21+, enjoy a Concrete Beach Beer at accounts after the restoration.


Event Details: Surfrider leaders will guide volunteers in the removal of invasive scaevola plants and litter from the beach dunes at 85th St. Surfrider will supply all necessary tools, supervision and cold water for all. The cutting, digging & hauling out of plants is strenuous and it will be hot – but an awesome workout.

Why: Scaevola, a highly invasive weed on Florida beach dunes, has displaced native species and compromised both the habitat and the health of the dunes. As protectors of the beach, Surfrider removes the invasive plants so that native flora and fauna can re-establish itself creating a healthier, more functional dune. Healthy dunes mean a healthy beach and serve to protect coastal communities from storm surges.
