Check out our posts below to keep up with FOS and learn how you can help us protect Sengekontacket. 


Throughout the year we have family friendly events for the community to come together and help us protect Sengekontacket and the barrier beach. We need your help to plant beach grass, pick up trash, and more! 

We will update this page with new opportunities to get involved as they come up, and make sure to follow along on Facebook and Instagram to get all the latest info about upcoming events!
