About this site

Thank you for visiting Blowing Rocks Preserve and helping us document changes to our Atlantic Ocean shoreline and beach dune habitat. This view is constantly changing as wind, waves, and ocean currents move sand up and down the beach. The beach dune is home to diverse native plants and provides nesting habitat to animals including sea turtles and shorebirds. The dune system protects barrier islands from erosion during storms like hurricanes. Native plants that grow on the dune have specialized roots that extend deep into the sand. These roots help hold the dune together, which prevents sand from being washed away by waves.
