Sea Oat Planting
Saturday, February 17, 2024
Join us for the annual sea oat planting and beach clean up at 2nd street south. Sea oats and other dune vegetation, such as sea grapes, help to strengthen the dune system making Cocoa Beach more resilient to the impacts of storms and provide areas for native wildlife to thrive.
Volunteers should meet at the 2nd street south beach access at 9am to receive instructions and sea oat planting tutorial from the site captain. All planting tools and materials will be provided, but volunteers may bring their own shovel, post hole digger, trowel, etc. if they wish. Beach clean up supplies will also be provided. Please help us make this a zero waste event! Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle and coffee cup. Large jugs of coffee and water and light snacks will be provided. This is a family friendly event, all are welcome.
