Illinois’ duneslands are the geologically youngest natural areas in our region. They are also under intense pressure from development as well as erosion. However, a high percentage of the native species in our state live in these unique natural areas. Kathleen will highlight both the ubiquitous and the rare, describing the adaptations and faunal relationships that have allowed plants to survive in such a harsh environment.
