We are focused on working with a diverse group of audiences to create a "sense of place"; to have our neighbors be proud of, and participate in, this globally rare, nationally significant and locally distinct place.
As part of the ongoing preserve-wide trail reconfiguration the trails are being adjusted in the Great Dune region of the preserve. In conjunction with the habitat restoration tree thinning, the current blue trail is being eliminated and the yellow trail is being rerouted to start at the Great Dune trailhead. These adjustments, to be completed by late spring 2023, will make for a less confusing visitor experience while also creating larger disturbance-free areas for wildlife. Thank you for your patience during this transition time.
