World Habitat Day - Creating Sand Dunes
About the event
For 'World Habitat Day' we'll be out erecting fencing on the sand dunes at North Beach. Porous structures such as chestnut paling fencing helps to build new dunes by slowing wind velocity and encouraging sand particles to deposit around the barrier. In this way we can trap wind-blown sand and widen the dunes towards the sea creating new dune habitat.
We'll provide all necessary equipment, just bring a packed lunch and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
Please meet at North Beach Car Park (Clifton Drive North, St Anne's, FY8 2TR).
