The future of all barrier island ecosystems is at risk. In order for the dune system at the Avalon Dune and Beach Trail to survive, we all have to do our part. “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make” Jane Goodall, Ph.D, DBE.
Therefore, the contents of the trail and nature should be extensions of your community that you care about and respect. Pick up trash if you see it. Don’t pull the flowers or walk on the dunes. Leave animals untouched for viewing and pictures. If you don’t do your part to save it, it may not always be there for you and others to enjoy it. Make certain you are the one of the people that preserved this area for future generations.
Remember, “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks” (Muir, 1877)
