Hanging out at Duxbury Beach and it’s actually for work, not for play! Pleased to welcome Secretary Maeve Bartlett from the Energy and Environmental Affairs Department and Bruce Carlisle, director of Coastal Zone Management here in Duxbury to announce a second round of grant funding for the state’s coastal green infrastructure program. Duxbury benefited in the first round with a $85,000 grant to the Beach Reservation to repair the cobble berm near first crossover and launch a pilot program to establish a beach grass nursery so area towns can get grass for replanting dunes locally instead of from New Jersey or North Carolina, which is often the case now due to limited supply. Some innovative ideas to address our green infrastructure needs and $1.5 million is now available for round two of this Coastal Resiliency Program. Thanks to our state partners and tall the hard work that went into grant application from the good folks at the Reservation and Duxbury town hall. Love to see this kind of cooperation to find innovative solutions!
