Sand Dune Protection

Michigan Sand Dune Protection Program Overview

The most fragile areas of Michigan's dunes can be protected while balancing the benefits of economic development, multiple human uses and benefits of public access and enjoyment through the protection of steep, erosive slopes, using alternative construction techniques to reduce the impacts of development on dunes, and protecting dune vegetation essential to dune preservation and stability.  Earthmoving, vegetation removal, and construction activities within a critical dune area are regulated through a permit program.
