Ocean City Offers Residents Secondary Dune Area Plants

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - One local town is accepting applications to help residents fight dune erosion. For the eighth year in a row, The Town of Ocean City is offering Beach District Plants to ocean front and ocean side residents. These plants, which include, beach grass, and, high tide bush, provide habitat enhancement, food and shelter, water quality treatment and erosion control to the secondary dune area.

Town of Ocean City Environmental Engineer Gail Blazer says "We began this program to help the health of the beach and address an area behind the dune which was in need of attention. The plants are very beneficial to the stability of the dune system and help with erosion and scour. Our residents and property owners love the program and it benefits the environment and the beach, so it is a win for everyone."

Residents can order plants, which will then need to be picked up at a predetermined date and time. Applications are being accepted through February 15. For more information or to receive an application, please contact Gail Blazer in the Town's Engineering Department at 410-289-8825 or gblazer@oceancitymd.gov.
