A team of volunteers dug deep this month to help beautify and preserve the beaches of Duck.

Sandy Cross, permit coordinator for the Town of Duck, organized the beach nourishment planting, which took place on Nov. 10. Another planting is set for Friday, Nov. 24.

"First day of Beach Planting in Duck was a huge success in my mind," Cross said in a Facebook post. M"any thanks to all the awesome volunteers that came out to help stabilize and grow our newly nourished beach. Many hands made quick work of the 4,000 plants we had to plant and the howling wind did not deter them. Looking forward to more successful planting dates in the coming months. Special thanks to Donny King for all his direction helping me get this started and the Town of Duck for supporting the cause."

Volunteers are needed between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Nov. 24, weather permitting.

"This can be a fun way to get out to the beach in the off season, develop relationships with your neighbors, and give back to the community," Cross said. "You don’t need to live in the nourishment area, or even in Duck, to participate."
