Description of the Event: 

Michigan dunes are a part of the largest freshwater dune system in the world, so large they are visible from space. Built by glaciers thousands of years ago, 275,000 acres of dunes line Michigan's shores today, yet only 70,000 acres are in public hands and somewhat protected from a wide range of threats. Once gone, they can never be replaced. We cannot protect them without first understanding their importance to our environment, economy and quality of life.
