Dunes habitat restored - MontereyHerald.com :
excerpt from above:
Quote:
A group of volunteers from around the world pitched in Saturday to clear an invasive species of ice plant from the Martin Dunes just north of Marina, one of the last pristine sand wilderness areas left on the Central Coast.

The volunteers are all members of the Oracle Development Tools User Group, a global nonprofit organization that provides networking, support and education for users of products from software giant Oracle Corporation.
Quote:
Rachel Saunders, Big Sur Land Trust director of communications, said the growth of ice plant anchors the sand and prevents the dune from replenishing itself through natural processes.

I'd like to see photos of these dunes if anyone lives out that way.
