BEACH ACCESS
AND CONSERVATION

What We Do

During The Spring Months, And Occasionally In The Fall, We Volunteer Our Vehicles And Manpower To Help The Beach Managers Do Whatever Work Needs To Be Done At The Time, Whether It Be Beach Cleanups, Pick Up Any Debris Deposited By Mother Nature’s Storms And/Or Irresponsible People, Or Dune Restoration Projects. We Also Meet With Beach Managers To Keep The Lines Of Communications Open, In Case Any Questions Or Concerns May Arise. We Also Attend Symposiums And Maintain A Booth In Sportsman Shows To Help Distribute Information About Ourselves And The Beaches That Allow Vehicle Access. The Information We Pass Out Is The Beach Access Policies, Rules And Regulations, And Of Course, Most Of The Conversations Are About Fishing And Beach Access Problems.

We Also Get Involved In Political Activities, Whether It Be The State House Or Washington DC. At Times We Find That We Have To Go On Our Own To The State And Federal Legislatures To Keep Them Informed As To What Is Going Right, And Occasionally What Is Not Right, Regarding Beach Access And Other Issues Important To Our Members.

MBBA Beach Conservation Projects

During The Spring Months And Occasionally In The Fall, We Volunteer Our Vehicles And Manpower For Hands-On Conservation Projects.

It’s A Great Way For The Family To Come Together In A Rewarding And Educational Endeavor That Benefits Everyone Who Uses The Beaches.

The Projects Consist Of Trash & Debris Pick Up, Erosion Control Fencing (Sometimes), Grass Planting (Sometimes) And Other Projects Of This Type As Required By The Specific Beach Or Area.

We Bring Work Gloves, Warm Clothes, A Shovel (Optional), A Hammer (Optional) And Other Items That We Think Would Be Helpful.

he Projects Start Around 9:30AM And End At Around Noontime When We Gather Together As A Group For Refreshments.

For Members Who Camp Overnight, There Is Usually A Pot Luck Dinner You Can Choose To Participate Or Not. (Weather Permitting)

Directions To Each Beach And A Schedule Are Available Each Spring At The Sportsman Shows, On Our Website And By Contacting The Conservation Chairman.
