The Beverly Shores Environmental Restoration Group (ERG) believes our unique dunes ecology is threatened by many invasive plant species that replace our native plant diversity with plant monocultures. ERG works to coordinate the removal of these invasive plant species.
We invite nominations for the 2021 Environmental Restoration Award. The award is given annually to a Beverly Shores property owner who has made progress in the battle against invasive species.
