Crescent Beach Dune Restoration Project and Community Work Day 3/30

By Block Island Residents Association | Mar 04, 2013

The purchase and installation of snow fencing is this year's Crescent Beach Dune Restoration Project, a collaboration between BIRA and the Town's Conservation Commission. A roll (50 feet) of snow fence with its poles and installation hardware costs $100 and that is why we are asking you to purchase rolls or portions of rolls.  This method has been proven over hundreds of years of trying various methods of dune preservation.

We have scheduled a community work day to install the snow fencing for Saturday, March 30 (Easter Weekend). We will meet at the Town Beach at 9:00 am. Mark your calendars and plan to join us! It is important that we install the fencing by the end of this month to maximize the restoration benefits for this summer. Accordingly, we need you to purchase your snow fence before the 30th.

We are pleased to announce that this year you can pay your Membership Dues and purchase your rolls or portions of rolls of snow fencing online.

Thank you for your support for your community!  We appreciate it more than we can say!
