The coastal sand dunes along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan make up the largest collection of freshwater coastal dunes in the world.
They provide valuable information that will help to manage and protect them and yields important insights into both the development of coastal dunes in general and climate change in Michigan over the last 5000 years.
The picture has been taken during an field trip associated to the National Workshop on Interpretation by the National Association for Interpretation (NAI) in 2004 in Van Buren State Park, Michigan, USA.
