PHOTOS: Easton's Beach Replanted After Sandy Damage
Volunteers and staff planted 1,000 sprigs of Beach Grass yesterday.
The planting was originally scheduled for Nov. 5, however the destruction left by Hurricane Sandy left the project to be rescheduled until Wednesday.
Instead of allowing the already purchased beach grass sprigs to die or deteriorate, it was decided the beach grass will be planted in areas where Sandy wiped out Bayberry trees and Rosa Rugosa Bushes in order to hold more beach sand on the property. Last Spring, 1,000 sprigs of grass were planted and held up very well to the water surge produced by Hurricane Sandy.
The planting will be concentrated on the areas of the courtyard outside the Rotunda building and in front of the bathhouses on the boardwalk.
