August 25: Community Stewardship Workday

22 Aug

*Come out to the dunes this Saturday to see how plants and insects on the beach thrive in summer weather! We’ll ID plants, pick up trash, get rid of invasive plants; whatever needs doing. Join us this Saturday August 25 from 10am-12pm.

Please remember to prepare for the weather and terrain: there is no shade in the hilly, uneven dunes area, so wear sturdy shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen, and water.

*Also be sure to come back on Sunday afternoon for the South Shore Farmers Market- this Sunday August 26 is our last weekly market of the season. Stay tuned for special markets throughout the autumn.  Visit SSFM on Facebook.

**Please note: re-routing of Hwy 41 means there is some confusion about how to enter the park. Enter at the intersection of South Shore/79th. Follow the new construction of Hwy 41 slightly south (go through the ‘road closed’ barricade, follow to the T-intersection, turn left and go back north directly into the park.

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St. By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St. By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water filtration plant, and park in the first parking lot. Please meet at the entrance to the nature area, which is located at the southern end of the beach (look for the banners!). Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at for questions and to RSVP.
