Picturesque though they are, coastal sand dunes and Dune Grass serve a more important purpose than beauty. Dunes act as flexible barriers to ocean storm surges and waves, protect low-lying areas, catch wind blown sand aiding in the prevention of beach erosion, and may provide a habitat for animals and birds. DUNE GRASS is very weak. If you step on it, the whole plant will die. With this in mind, while you are enjoying our beaches, please do not touch the Dune Grass. Thank you.
