Nags Head

Most of these photos were taken at the Nags Head Woods ecological preserve. This preserve contains a very large maritime forest with thick vegetation. This forest has grown on an old dune system. The low areas between the dune ridges contain wetlands and ponds. Look at the pictures and decide what conditions or factors allow a maritime forest to develop on a barrier island.
