Start 2012 with Your Eyes on the Coast
Join us for a bracing walk on the winter beach and a really good time.
The New Year’s Day Beach Walk was started in the 1970s by the Society’s long-time leader, Dery Bennett. We are continuing that tradition in memory of Dery’s love for the coast and his many years of fighting to protect and preserve it.
These walks are free and open to the public but donations are welcome to help defray costs. They go rain or shine; however, in the event of an extreme weather event, we will post a notice at www.littoralsociety.org by 7 AM the day of the walk.
