The Institute for Regional Conservation, a nonprofit dedicated to the protection, restoration and long-term management of ecological diversity, held a coastal dune restoration event at Oceanfront Park in Boynton Beach as part of its Restoring the Gold Coast program. It aims to restore native coastal biodiversity in south Palm Beach County by planting populations of species that historically grew in the area but are currently extirpated or underrepresented. Cara Abbott, IRC education and outreach coordinator, worked with the Surfrider Foundation’s Palm Beach County chapter, Keith Buttry from Neglected Plants LLC, Mike Cangey from Coastal Growers Inc., and a dozen other volunteers from the community on the Oceanfront Park project.
