Plant populations; Sand dunes
Norway Dunes, a 320-acre preserve located in Kittson County, Minnesota, and owned by The Nature Conservancy, is named for the parabolic sand dunes found within its boundaries. These dunes are covered with oak sand savanna, a natural community that is threatened in Minnesota. This oak sand savanna harbors four plant species that are also threatened or of special concern in the state. A deciduous forest and four types of wetlands are other natural communities on the preserve. During a vascular plant survey of the tract, 207 species were collected. Some of these species represent range extensions within the state.
