The Utility & Beauty of Coastal Dunes

“The following photographs and text provide a basic understanding of the beach and its vegetation.  We tried to capture the beauty of the vegetation during various seasons so the user can recognize the plants any time. Although all plants are beneficial and some add beauty, others provide food and wildlife habitat or serve as deterrents to trespassers.  It is important to remember that no completely undesirable  species of plants grow on a dune”.
