Jockey's Ridge

State Park - North Carolina

Jockey's Ridge State Park is located in Nags Head, North Carolina, and includes the tallest active sand dune system in the eastern United States. Jockey's Ridge contains three unique ecosystems: the Roanoke Sound, the dune system, and the maritime forest. Often when it rains, water collects near the bottom of the dunes creating temporary ponds known as vernal pools. Few fauna can be seen around the dunes, although some types of flora, such as tall grass, may be seen near the bottom of the dunes.
