DUNES; QUANCH HILLS

(2017 - Ongoing)








Quanch Hills, Fire Island National Seashore.

Fire Island National Seashore is a federally designated Wilderness Area on the eastern end of Fire Island. This narrow, 32 mile long barrier island is off of Long Island, which itself stretches 120 miles eastward from New York City.

Parts of the Wilderness Area are largely inaccessible and hold a rare ecosystem of dunes, forests, wetlands and sand flats. Hurricane Sandy in 2012 was a turning point for this ecosystem. Amongst the many changes, there has been a notable shift in the topography of the island. The undisturbed, timeless dunes of Quanch Hills are washing away.
