simple steps help preserve outer banks beaches
Sometimes the solutions to our more difficult problems come as a gift. In this article from Lindsey Dianna of the North Beach Sun, the gift is some Christmas trees, some plugs of beach grass and a simple way to preserve the dune line that protects the Beach Road in Kitty Hawk.
“Donny King, owner of Ocean Boulevard in Kitty Hawk, wants your Christmas trees, and he doesn’t plan to take them down any time soon.
Life on a sandbar is rarely dull, particularly when your livelihood sits just yards from the Atlantic Ocean. To make things a little less lively, Donny has put into practice an innovative approach to beach maintenance—a practice that works with the forces of Mother Nature for a result that is long-lasting and green—literally.”
