Welcome to Airport Rd., the largest of the living shoreline projects on the tour. This stop showcases the dune enhancement zone and is only about 1/3 of the total project area. In this project area, sands were built up to an elevation suitable for the iconic sea oats you see growing here.

Sand dunes, and the vegetation that stabilizes them, are an important facet of coastal resilence, as they can provide a great deal of protection against storm surge and wind. However, dunes that are impacted by major hurrcanes or simliar events usually need to be restored in order to continue to provide protection for the next storm.
