Community Bright Spots! The Sand Dunes

NOTE: You can find more information about the mission of this page here.

The sand dunes provide a barrier to protect property. The sea oats help stabilize the dune structure. Photos below show a few dunes in our beaches area today (2021) and how the same area looked as a result of Hurricane Matthew in 2016. With dune restoration (https://news.wjct.org/post/jacksonville-beaches-sand-dune-restoration-begin-after-hurricane-matthew) and community volunteers the dunes and sea oats have rebounded.
