The Oregon dunes are important to our coastal communities both economically and ecologically. They delight residents and the approximately 500,000 visitors who travel to see them each year and support a plethora of native plants and wildlife. And the dunes are disappearing before our eyes. Learn about this unique landscape from local author, U.S. Forest Service Volunteer, and exceptional steward of the Oregon dunes, Dina Pavlis.
