On April 25, 2010 at 9 A.M. LIBAG participated in a Dune Grass planting at West Gilgo. This Dune Grass Planting was well represented by ALL Waterpersons.
Surfrider, Windsurfers,Surfers, of all types, as well as fishermen,
We helped out because Elizabeth Wintenberger, Facility Manager
Robert Moses/ Captree State Parks asked us to; and because LIBAG believes this is the right thing to do.
We planted approximately 12,000 bare root plants We showed up in the cold wet rain. We planted Dune Grass in an attempt to stabilize the new man made dune at West Gilgo.
Even though this is a beach off limits to us LIBAG Members.
The weather was less than ideal: The rain made the morning cold and miserable. But everyone was in good spirits. It was good to see LIBBA, LIBAG and SURFRIDER working side by side. As it should be.
