Report Details

Both segments of this mile have significant erosion of vegetated foredunes. The northern part shows little impact on Bullard's State Park, apart from logs pushed from the beach onto the parking lot (unlike last year, when the logs jammed the beach). For the southern part, however, tides are moving closer to beachfront properties as well as threatening the jetty parking lot. Despite temps in the mid-30s, 6 people and 4 dogs were out at 7 a.m. near low tide at full moon. Shells, splintered wood pieces and rocks comprised the tide line. The only wildlife was a scattering of gulls. What litter I could find included styrofoam bits, plastic pieces and water bottles.
