Glacial till, soil carried from melted glaciers, deposited the sand that now creates the beaches and dunes at Alburg Dunes State Park. The natural barrier island is a haven for swimming and picnicking. Explore the fantastic landscape of the dunes carefully so as not to disturb the rare Champlain beach grass and low-growing beach-pea which struggle to survive. Kayak, canoe, and rowboat rentals offer views from a different perspective. The park is popular for bird watching, and spring and fall migration bring thousands of common goldeneyes, ring-necked ducks, hooded mergansers and northern pintails. In winter, see bohemian waxwings, snow buntings and snowy owls. Among the marsh and swamp resident’s mammals are woodchuck, mink, fox, moose and deer.
