Beach District Plants Offered to Ocean City Property Owners

Ocean City, Maryland – (January 14, 2020): For the 15th year in a row, the Town of Ocean City will be offering beach district plants to the public for planting in the secondary dune area. The plants being offered are hardy plants that tolerate the harsh environment of the oceanfront areas. In addition, these plants provide habitat enhancement, food and shelter, water quality treatment and erosion control to the secondary dune area, which tends to be overlooked and needs attention.

“We began this program to help create habitat and prevent erosion of the area behind the dune which was in need of attention,” said Town of Ocean City Environmental Engineer Gail Blazer. “The plants are very beneficial to the stability of the dune system and help with erosion and scour. Our residents and property owners love the program and it benefits the environment and the beach, so it is a win for everyone.”

Oceanfront and oceanside residents will have the opportunity to order plants that will need to be picked up at a predetermined date and time. Suitable plants to add to a secondary dune area include beach grass, bayberry, rugosa rose, beach plum, high tide bush, red cedar, and panic grass. Applications are now being accepted, however, the deadline for all applications is March 1, 2020.

For more information or to receive and application, please contact Gail Blazer in the Town’s Engineering Department at (410) 289-8825 or email gblazer@oceancitymd.gov. Also, more information is provided by visiting https://oceancitymd.gov/oc/departments/engineering/environment/.

If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
