Ventura Surfrider Workday!

IMG_8963Sunday March 20th my brother and I took all of my nieces and nephews out to Ventura Point to work on the Ventura Surfrider Dune restoration project.

The learned about Ecosystem based management of the point and the native and non-native plants in the dunes.  At Ventura point we have seen a large difference in the loss of beach between the area where the dune project is in effect and about 200 feet south along the boardwalk.

Where the restoration project is located much of the beach has remained intact and south of there (seen in the photo to the right) most of the sand is gone and damage has been done to the walkways during the large storms this winter.
