Coastal Dunes provide important wildlife habitat and protect the marsh against damaging coastal flooding and sea level rise. Thousands of shoots of native dune grasses have been planted along six miles of the Great Marsh barrier beaches. Some sections of beach have also been re-nourished with sand to create dunes. The Partnership will continue restoration and dune re-nourishment activities as well as further develop outreach and training programs to involve local stakeholders in the process.
