Great Lakes dune conservation has been pursued with great dedication by
a great many workers in the eight Great Lakes States and Ontario. Never
have such workers gathered together to pool knowledge and formulate a
common cause for their efforts. The goal of  this first ever Great Lakes
Dune Conference will be to establish a Great Lakes Sand Dune Ecosystem
Coalition that will bring together all persons in the US and Canada
currently involved in sand dune related research, education efforts,
management, monitoring and other activities, in an effort to share
information and increase the awareness of this unique ecosystem.

Protection Agency (www.epa.gov/grtlakes) has provided funding
administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (www.nfwf.org)
