The Strathmere Fishing & Environmental Club (SFEC) designates October as their Environmental Month, and they hold special programs to provide education on and help for the environment. On Saturday, October 8, they sponsored a dune grass planting event in the morning and a presentation on ospreys in the afternoon. Both were very well attended, including many SIA members.
Here's a picture of folks having fun (really!) planting some 2500 dune grass seedlings:
Again, many more pictures of the presentation may be found on the SFEC website here - http://www.strathmerefishing.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=167:osprey&catid=3:meetings
Our thanks to the SFEC for these outstanding events, and especially to Carol Ferguson and Dick Omrod, who took care of organizing them!
