Supervisor Venditto Invites Residents to Volunteer for Annual Dune Stabilization Project

Environmental Project Returns to Tobay Beach March 28th

 

Anyone interested in protecting and enhancing Tobay Beach can join with fellow volunteers and Town officials at the Annual Tobay Beach Dune Stabilization Project, slated for Saturday, March 28, at 10:00 a.m. according to Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto.

 

“This environmentally important dune grass planting project helps protect the Town’s fragile beach dunes from erosion,” Supervisor Venditto said. “Recent storms, particularly Hurricane Sandy, have had a significant impact upon the dunes and this project goes a long way to shoring these sandy barriers for future generations.”

 

Supervisor Venditto explained that the planting of grass is extremely helpful in stabilizing and building dunes because it provides a natural buffer against storm surge and high winds. “Ultimately, all the volunteers feel pride in knowing they have done something tangible to protect the delicate ecosystem of the beach and surrounding areas,” Supervisor Venditto said. “More than a thousand volunteers showed up for the event last year and planted more than 230,000 stalks of dune grass. I hope we have even more hands helping this year.”

 

Throughout its long history, the Town of Oyster Bay Dune Stabilization Project has not only benefitted the environment, it has also provided an excellent opportunity for community groups and volunteers to take part in a worthwhile endeavor. “Many Town residents realize the importance of this project and parents have taken the opportunity to teach their children about protecting our environment for future generations,” Supervisor Venditto said. “It truly is a team effort that leaves participants with a sense of pride and accomplishment. As a Town of Oyster Bay resident I am always proud to see the enthusiastic and unselfish response of our residents at this event.”

 

Supervisor Venditto noted that anyone interested in volunteering or seeking more information should contact the Department of Environmental Resources at 677-5943, or visit www.oysterbaytown.com. “I hope to see everyone there,” Supervisor Venditto said. “It will be a memorable and fun day for all participants.”

Volunteer Now for TOBAY Dune Stabilization Project on March 15

Environmental Project Triumphantly Returns Post-Sandy to Tobay Beach

 

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto invites those who wish to join him help protect and enhance Tobay Beach, along with fellow Town officials, Town work crews and other concerned individuals, at the annual Tobay Beach Dune Stabilization Project, one of the premiere environmental events not only in the Town of Oyster Bay, but across Long Island. This year, the first dune stabilization project at Tobay since Hurricane Sanday, will take place on March 15th, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.

 

“I am pleased to announce the return of this event which is vital not only for our environmental preservation efforts here in the Town, but also an excellent opportunity for community groups and volunteers to pitch in and give back,” Supervisor Venditto said. “Last year’s event, which was to be the 25th annual, unfortunately was cancelled as a result of the unprecedented devastation brought about by Hurricane Sandy. As I promised last year when I had to make the tough decision to cancel this project, this storm is something that this Town would come back from, and I am proud to say that Tobay beach, including the entirety of its dunes and facilities, have been restored to its former glory.”

 

Supervisor Venditto noted that projects such as this are important for numerous reasons, chief amongst them being that the planting of the grass helps to stabilize and enlarge our dunes, helping to provide a natural barrier against storm surge and high winds, as well as protecting the delicate ecosystem of the surrounding areas. At the last Dune Stabilization Project in March 2012, over 1,100 volunteers turned out for the event and planted more than 230,000 stalks of dune grass.

 

Supervisor Venditto went on to state that as in years past, volunteers are needed to help plant dune grass. For those seeking more information, contact the Department of Environmental Resources at 677-5748, or visit oysterbaytown.com.
