The County Of Dukes County has just completed it's annual planting program for Joseph Sylvia State Beach. The purpose of the planting is to control errosion, which includes keeping vehicles from parking off the pavement.
The Friends of Sengekontacket generously purchased and donated 50 beach plums for this year’s plantings. We have had a good success with beach plums at this location. In addition 20 bundles of beach grass were also planted.
Volunteers that assisted with the planting included, Patrick Parker, Matthew Parker, Robert Prenda, Tyrone Barlosky, Jennifer Brown, Luke Depriest, Chuck Cotnair, and Brian Kennedy.
