Video Tells the Story of Disappearing Dunes

Florence, Ore. - The Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative (ODRC) is pleased to announce the release of Saving the Oregon Dunes. This 7-minute video tells the amazing story of one of the largest expanses of temperate coastal sand dunes in the world and how invasive plants threaten this enchanting landscape. Learn how the ODRC is working to preserve and restore this national treasure. 

Utilizing funds from the CHILDS-WHITNEY Trust, the ODRC partnered with Spring Fed Media to develop Saving the Oregon Dunes. Script writing, editing and content contributors are all part of the ODRC. 

The ODRC encourages sharing the video link with family, friends and anyone interested in seeing this precious asset preserved for future generations. Without continuing action, the dunes will be lost forever.
