This open dune complex is home to a wide variety of rare plant and animal species, and is a fine example of our parks namesake--the dunes. Unfortunately, the integrity of this dune is threatened by off-trail hiking. When individuals roam off-trail, the vegetation that holds the dunes together is trampled, causing the dunes to erode. We hope the photo you have submitted will document success of our dune protection efforts.
