Earth Week Activities at Waverly Beach

FortErie_WaverlyBeach_EarthDay_2In anticipation of this year’s Earth Week, the Bert Miller Nature Club has teamed up with the Town of Fort Erie and local high school students to enhance Fort Erie’s Waverly Beach and sand dune topography along the Lake Erie coast.

 

The project will include :
1. Planting beachgrass to restore natural beach and sand dune topography at Waverly Beach Park
2. Building and installing three boardwalks to keep foot traffic off sensitive dune habitats
3. Installing interpretive signs to provide information about coastal ecosystems and nearby plants and animals at two locations along the promenade.

FortErie_WaverlyBeach_EarthDay_4Funding for this project is provided by the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund through their ongoing commitment to the protection and restoration of the ecological health of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Basin.

What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day tomorrow?
