FAll Dune restoration

We are asking volunteers to join us in the Township of Huron-Kinloss, Municipality of Kincardine, and Town of Saugeen Shores this fall for dune restoration!

 

Help build a resilient shoreline through invasive species removal, beach grass planting, and sand fence installation. Through this volunteer opportunity you will meet like-minded environmentalists and learn how to protect our beautiful Lake Huron shoreline!
