Right on Red in Stone Harbor

Avalon's Dune Vegetation Management Plan
The Avalon dune system is experiencing tremendous growth in native vegetation courtesy of the Borough’s successful Dune Vegetation Management Plan, which was created in 2009 in agreement with the NJ Dept of Environmental Protection. As part of the Plan, dead and stressed invasive Japanese Black Pine trees were removed – these trees previously displaced native species, and in recent years, the infestation of bark beetles that carry Blue Stain Fungus have infested many of these trees, causing them to rapidly decline, and die, creating public health and safety hazards. You’ll notice a big difference on the beach paths between 44th and 50th street, where native vegetation has recovered, thus providing ecological diversity and integrity of the dunes. Spanning from about 40th Street to 58th Street, the high dune area is something that most of us pass without much thought as we travel around town. I can remember my Mom remarking about the natural beauty of the high dunes; meanwhile, as a child, I couldn’t get to the end of the beach path fast enough! Through the years I gained wisdom; I learned to slow down & smell the roses! And sure enough, my dear Mom was right; what a beautiful area! You might try taking a refreshing walk on one of the 5 beach paths through the high dune area. Sheltered from the hot sun in the summer, and from the chilling winter winds, the high dune area is an ecological wonder that connects you with nature; a welcome respite from the fast pace of Life! Enjoy!
