More than 75 volunteers, including Field & Stream staffers, gave up their Saturday to clean up and restore Island Beach State Park, a 10-mile-long barrier island off the New Jersey coast that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

maybe someone should ask our wonderful nj governor why sooo much money was wasted on rebuilding boardwalks to generate business yet outside of those areas still looks like a war zone? there are no crowds at the jersey shore like there used to be. and yet millons of dollars were wasted rebuilding a boardwalk that has yet to generate the millions of dollars before the storm?

Ah, but Island Beach State Park is not the nearby boardwalk. It is a natural resource unlike many others - a 10-mile-long barrier island beach that should be preserved. Thanks to the many who love IBSP and all those who came out to help restore by "planting" Christmas trees and beach grass to help rebuild the dunes, install more dune fencing, and donate money to groups like the nonprofit Friends of Island Beach State Park to be used for restoration, programming and supplies needed at the park. And, thanks to Field and Stream for acknowledging all the volunteers.
