World Planting Day on Fylde Sand Dunes
About the event
To celebrate World Planting Day, we'll be planting dune grasses such as Marram and Lyme to help stabilise the sand dunes. Vegetation is vital to the stability of the dunes as it traps and anchors sand blown in from the beach, helping to build the sand dunes. Damage of the vegetation on dunes, often caused by human use, can lead to erosion
and potentially reduce the dunes effectiveness in protecting from storm conditions. Join us to protect the dunes by planting vital grasses to trap and anchor sand particles. We'll provide all equipment needed. Just wear warm clothing and appropriate footwear.
