Learn from a GTM Research Reserve interpretive guide where the restless sand comes from and where it's going, as well as its refusal to just stay put. Learn about coquina rocks, dune flowers, sea birds, shells and the humble gopher tortoise that digs deep burrows and comes out to dine on prickly pears along the dunes. Bring your camera for possible sightings. The event is free.
