Hundreds of Volunteers Help Strengthen Shoreline by Planting Dune Grass at TOBAY

Hundreds of volunteers of all ages joined with Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, Councilwoman Laura Maier and Receiver of Taxes Jeff Pravato at the Town’s Dune Day event at TOBAY Beach. State Assemblyman Michael Durso also participated in the event. This project brings together groups, families, and individuals concerned about our environment helping to protect and preserve our beautiful shoreline by planting stalks of dune grass. Dunes along the south shore continue to face environmentally damaging storms that have a significant impact on the beach. Statistics indicate that the planting of dune grass provides a natural shield that is perfect for withstanding storm surges and high winds.
