20 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 23 - February 29, 1996 SussexBird Club to meet March 11 "The National Wildlife Refuge System" will be the topic of the Sussex Bird Club meeting at 7:30 p.m., Monday, March 11. George O'Shea, manager of Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, will discuss how and why the refuge system was set up, what purposes the refuges serve and other information about these vital areas that protect and offer sanctu- 'ary to a myriad of species. The Sussex Bird Club wel- comes visitors and guests to all of its functions at no charge. The Sussex Bird Club was formed in June 1983 when 16 birders met and agreed to official- ly join together. The primary ob- jective of the club is to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of birds. In addition to nine monthly meetings, the club runs approxi- mately 12 field trips per year, mostly to Sussex birding areas such as Cape Henlopen State Park, Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge and Great Cy- press Swamp. The club also has conducted the annual Seaford-Nanticoke Audubon Christmas Count since 1983 and has been active in sup- porting conservational activities throughout Sussex County. The club joined with the Nanticoke Watershed Preservation Commit- tee in 1993 to construct and install osprey nesting platforms along the Nanticoke River near Seaford. While the club has no official affiliation with the Delmarva Or- nithological Society, it cooperates closely with that group and mem- bers of each organization are wel- come to join in the other's activi- ties. Yearly dues are $7 for an indi- vidual and $10 per couple. For more information on the meeting location and membership, call Marta Atchison, 539-0384; Presi- dent Bill Baumgardner, 945-2025, or newsletter editor Sally Fintel, 645-5561.

Festival of Trees benefits Hospice The Festival of Trees held at Delaware Tech Owens Campus in Georgetown this past holiday was a great success.

Volunteers sought for beach grass planting The Blizzard of '96 caused heavy damage to dunes along Delaware's coast and hundreds of volunteers are needed to help plant beach grass this spring to re- store the dunes. Delaware's Sev- enth Annual Beach Grass Planting Project will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 23. "During the blizzard, all eyes were on snow removal, but our state's beaches got pounded pretty badly during the storm," said Tony Pratt, program manager of Terry L. Myers, Hebron, Md., and Maria E.

Pratt said volunteers are needed to help plant grass in the Fenwick Island, Lewes, Cape Henlopen, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Seashore State Park regions, as Well as on bayside beaches. "Dunes are a major part of our coastal protection against damag- ing storms," Pratt said. "They ab- sorb storm waves and act as stor- age areas which replenish sand to eroded beaches during storms." Pratt said that since the blizzard of Jan. 7-8, state crews have been at work rebuilding dunes and plantings will help reinforce these new dunes "While the rest of the state was digging out, we were al- ready planning our repair work in anticipation of the beach grass planting," he said.
