Join NYC Parks in protecting and stabilizing new dunes in Staten Island. Dunes are essential for protection against damaging coastal storms. Beach grass helps to increase the size of dunes by trapping windblown sand and its fibrous root system strengthens dunes by keeping sand in place.

Volunteers will plant beach grass along the crest and face of the dune. Please dress in warm, comfortable clothing and sturdy shoes, and bring a reusable water bottle and snacks. Please note that there is no place to store personal items.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Planting dates are subject to change. Please check the website the day of the event to confirm.

NYC Parks and the Natural Areas Conservancy would like to thank the following partners and donors for supporting New York City's efforts to build and stabilize dunes: Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Fund for the City of New York, Leon Levy Foundation, NYC Service, Partnerships for Parks, and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
