About the event

For 'World Habitat Day' we'll be out erecting fencing and planting Marram grass on the sand dunes at North Beach, St Anne's. 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. Vegetation such as Marram grass helps to bind sand particles and anchor them in place so less is blown away from the dunes helping to create embryo dunes.

We'll provide all necessary equipment, just wear appropriate clothing and footwear. 

Please note: There are currently no toilets available at this location, so please use the facilities elsewhere before attending - Thank you!
