Park Point is a little strip of land that jets out from Canal Park in Duluth, MN connected by the world famous Aerial Lift Bridge.  Park Point, the home to real estate that is worth millions, sky harbor airport and the virgin forest, is under daily attack from erosional forces to it's portective dunes. Without the dunes the risk of a blowout, or a depression of sand, many time due to lack of loss of vegetative cover.
