Dune restoration at Mackerel Cove

Kudos to all the folks who volunteered their time this past Saturday to help plant beach grass at the Mackerel Cove town beach.

The effort is part of an ongoing beach grass restoration project to repair dunes which were severely damaged in the whopper storm that roared across the island last fall.

Volunteers, teenagers, and Boy Scouts gathered on Saturday morning and successfully planted some 11,000 beach grass sprouts. The project was organized by the Jamestown Conservation Commission.
