Significance of the name

 

 

 

     Stretching along the Central Oregon Coast in a long narrow strip, the Oregon Dunes is a unique area. Sand forms it all; deep forests grow on it, water runs through it, and rivers are dammed by it to form lakes. But it is the stark, bare dunes that are the greatest source of wonder.

     The present shoreline stabilized 6,000 years ago. Tides, wave action and strong coastal winds moved sand up to two and a half miles inland for thousands of years. The gently sloping terrace of solid marine sandstone in the Florence area encouraged the build-up of sand into dunes. Many of the dunes, in this 40 mile-long area, rise to 500 feet above sea level.

        The dunes are constantly changing. The introduction of non-native, invasive plant species threatens to completely cover the dunes in some locations. It is an ever-changing environment altered by wind, sand and time. These dunes are like no others in the world. They are the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America.

         Oregon Dunes Chapter NSDAR was organized April 12, 2008, with twelve organizing members.
