— Written By

A dune repair workshop will be offered by North Carolina Sea Grant, NC Division of Coastal Management, and the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service.

  • Date/Time:  March 9, 2019, 1–3 p.m.
  • Location:  Surf City Welcome Center, 102 N. Shore Dr.

Come learn more about how beaches and dunes work, planting dune grasses, and current regulations.

To register, email Topsail Beach Town Hall at accountant@topsailbeach.org or call 910.328.5841. This is a free event!

“How to” information on dune repair is available in The Dune Book. Copies will be provided to workshop attendees. Many of the NC beach towns impacted by H. Florence have received copies of the booklet. It is also available for download at the North Carolina Sea Grant website.

Per Spencer Rogers, most local governments have a Local Permit Official who is the first contact for dune permits. They regularly guide property owners through the sand fence installations that, if followed, do not need a permit.
