29th Annual DNREC Beach Grass Planting. 8 A.M. - Noon
Conquest Road Parking area.

DMS has again been asked by DNREC to assist at their 29th Annual Beach Grass Planting on Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 9 AM to Noon. This year, DNREC volunteers will be planting beach grass at various areas within the Delaware Seashore State Park, and could use some help transferring volunteers from site to site on the beach.

DMS has been a stalwart supporter of this event. DMS members are needed to man the cook shack and, of course, to transport the beach grass planting volunteers on the beach. While DNREC has not yet determined the exact locations, all DMS members are urged to help. DMS members that are willing to provide transport on the beaches should, of course, have a vehicle with a valid Surf Fishing Vehicle Permit tag.

Mark your calendar for this important event. Please contact DMS Director Brad Wharton via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 302-236-0126 to volunteer your help. Please put “Beach Grass Planting” in the subject line. If Brad cannot be contacted, email your commitment to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
