AERIAL DUNE GRASS FERTILIZATION is planned in Avalon and Stone Harbor on Thursday, October 20th. The operation is expected to take place in the morning, finishing around 11am.  Recently volunteers planted additional dune grass in Avalon’s dune system.

BEACH SWEEPS will be conducted in Avalon & Stone Harbor this weekend.  Volunteers are needed to assist with cleanup efforts in both towns on Saturday from 9am to 12:30pm.  In Stone Harbor, volunteers are asked to report to the 95th Street beach; in Avalon volunteers are asked to report to the 80th Street beach.  Volunteers will be provided with trash bags, gloves, and datasheets.

DID YOU SEE IT?  Monday evening an Antares rocket was launched from Wallop’s Island, Virginia, after several days of launch delays.  The rockets fiery trail was visible to sky watchers all over South Jersey, with Cape May County’s beaches offering some of the best views.  After arcing into the sky for a few minutes it suddenly went dark, then became visible again as the rocket’s second stage began.

The latter part of the Antares rocket’s initial burn is visible in this photo, looking southward from Ocean City’s 9th Street causeway. 

THIS WEEK’S WEATHER has been super, with daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s, along with gentle breezes and clear skies.  Occasional showers are expected late in the week, with cooler, dryer air moving in for the weekend.  Enjoy the fall weather while it lasts!
