North Truro Dunes Walk

May 20, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

$36 - $44

Enjoy a walk through the dunes of Cape Cod National Seashore and explore its seasonally flooded wetlands, known as dune slacks. With their distinctive hydrophytic plant communities, dune slacks are an oasis of biodiversity in an otherwise desert-like environment. They are one of the last refuges on the Outer Cape for species such as insectivorous sundews and orchids such as the tuberous grass-pink and rose pogonia. From a wildlife perspective, they are critical habitat for the reproduction and survival of numerous invertebrates and amphibians. Bring a bag lunch.

Habitat: dunes and freshwater wetlands
Known For: dunes and dune slack habitats
Difficulty: Easy/Moderate
