Shoreline Planting at Long Beach

Thu, 12/08/2022 - 12:39
In April of 2021, town workers "scraped" the parking lot at Long Beach, removing many native plants. An effort has been underway since March to replace the vegetation.

The Noyac Civic Council, the Town of Southampton Parks and Recreation Department, and the Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program will lead a Long Beach shoreline restoration planting on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.

Participants will help plant native coastal grasses and shrubs to replenish the natural buffer between the beach and the parking area. Guided instruction and tools will be provided. The rain date is Sunday.

The plantings are an effort to revegetate the area, ongoing since March, after town workers in April 2021 inadvertently removed too much.
