Dune improvements Ocean Ridge — Nov. 10

Members of the Ocean Ridge Garden Club, including (l-r) Val Coz, Stella Kolb and Allison Adams, plant dune sunflowers in part of a dune plot that the Garden Club has maintained for the past decade and is turning into a demonstration project. Members used native plants to replace non-native vegetation and sod that had overtaken the lot. The project also includes saw palmetto and the installation of riprap rocks and railroad ties. As committee member Julia Walker explained, ‘In addition to restoring the dune, the goal of the project is to create a showcase of native plantings as an example of sustainable conservation that can be replicated all along the Ocean Ridge dune.’
