Beach Plums are plants native to the entire east coast of the United States, but how much do you really know about them? In this lecture, Joe Alvarez will answer all of the questions you might have, including those about optimal growing environments and the multiple uses of the fruit once it has matured.

After the presentation, feel free to follow Joe over to Higbee Beach to see the beach plums up close!


Joseph Alvarez has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and a minor in Environmental Science, is a founding member of the Cape May County Beach Plum Association, a member of the state Beekeepers Association and is active in many county and agricultural programs in South Jersey.
