New York takes better care

Bellport, NY



Living in Long Island, New York for the past 10 years, I’ve taken many trips to Fire Island to see the beautiful dunes and all the wonderful wildlife and organisms it holds.

Just arriving in Nipomo recently, I was excited to hear that you had dunes as well. Taking a trip there, I was astonished at how massive they are. Hiking around, I was amazed to see some of the Monarch butterflies and all the different types of birds and plant life of the area. The thing that baffled me was all of the vehicles driving around in the area adjacent to me.

Surely everyone knows that even walking on the dunes can harm them, let alone allowing vehicles to drive on them. You would think that a community that holds such a beautiful asset would try to preserve it and not destroy it.
