The Great Lakes have most of the coastal freshwater dunes in the world. 
Hundreds of thousands of people visit them each year, drawn by these
"jewels" strung along hundreds of miles of the lakes' shorelines.

Dune visitors, as well as many who may never see them in person, can now
catch glimpses of their beauty and learn more about them through a new
publication, DISCOVERING GREAT LAKES DUNES.   This 32 page, colorful,
fully illustrated booklet describes the making of dunes, various dune
types and locations, the dune zones, the value and protection of the
dunes.  The booklet contains many photos of dune complexes,
illustrations of important dune concepts and photos/illustrations of
plants and animals that live on Great Lakes dunes.

The book was written by Elizabeth Brockwell-Tillman and Earl Wolf of the
Michigan Department of Natural Resources and published through a joint
venture by the Gillette Natural History Association, Michigan State
University Extension and the Michigan Sea Grant Program.
