Walk Leader: Melanie Meade
This area of dune habitat in Napeague is unique among the many sand dunes on Long Island. When the wind blows just right the sand is pushed forward, making the dunes “walk” a few inches each year. After more than 100 years, the dunes have covered and then uncovered a forest. The dunes also contain cranberry bogs that are home to sundews, a type of carnivorous plant. When you walk along the trail in the Walking Dunes in the fall you can see cranberry plants with ripe berries and if you look closely, you can spot the sundews around the edge of the bog.
