World Habitat Day - Creating Sand Dunes
About the event
Porous structures such as chestnut paling fencing help to build new dunes by slowing wind velocity and encouraging sand particles to deposit around the barrier. In this way we can trap wind-blown sand and widen the dunes towards the sea, creating new dune habitat. Vegetation such as marram grass helps to bind sand particles and anchor them in place, so less is blown away from the dunes, helping to create embryo dunes.
We'll provide all necessary equipment, just wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Please book a ticket before attending the event so we know how many people to expect.
