The lecture will concentrate on how sand dunes are formed, what holds them together and what influence they have on the flora living behind them. Barrier islands are unstable habitats, yet they become the home of a vibrant and thriving community of plants and animals, all protected by the line of sand dunes fronting the open beach.
The mission of BCAS is to educate the people of the greater Bucks County region about the natural world with an emphasis on energy and resource conservation, including protection of birds, other wildlife and their habitats. Mertz is president of BCAS and professor at Delaware Valley University.
