Help the Littoral Society Male Shell Bags
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Contact for Tickets: Quinn Whitesall at Quinn@LittoralSociety.org  Cost: Free
The American Littoral Society is bagging shell once again for a fifth intertidal reef that will be built this coming Spring off one of our horseshoe crab beach restoration projects along the Delaware Bay. We have the materials but need some helping hands to fill shell bags. These reefs will provide calmer waters for horseshoe crab spawning and will provide habitat for juvenile fish and invertebrate species. They also reduce wave force, which has reduced sand erosion at some of our other beach restoration sites. Work will involve cutting and tying bags, filling mesh bags with shells, and stacking the bags. The work will be dirty and a bit smelly and will occur on the docks of the Maurice River, so be sure to dress appropriately. The shell bags we produce will weigh approximately 20 pounds each. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers. For additional questions, please contact Quinn Whitesall atQuinn@littoralsociety.org.  Link: https://www.littoralsociety.org
