Did you know the Duluth/Superior area hosts one of the world’s largest freshwater baymouth sand bars in the world? Did you know we have a coastal dune system in Minnesota? Come join Rebecca for the evening to learn more about this unique and fascinating place that exists right outside our doorsteps. The focus will be on the plants, both rare and common, and the native plant communities that occur on Minnesota Point.
Rebecca Holmstrom is a plant ecologist and botanist with the Minnesota Biological Survey (Division of Ecological and Water Resources, MN DNR). She has also spent several field seasons in the dune system on Minnesota Point researching one of Minnesota’s threatened plant species, American beachgrass. Minnesota Point is one of her favorite places.
