This sanctuary is one of four MNA sanctuaries located along the Great Sand Bay, west of Eagle Harbor. The other sanctuaries are Redwyn’s Dunes Nature Sanctuary, Eagle Harbor Red Pine Dunes Memorial Nature Sanctuary, and Dean Webster Memorial Plant Preserve. All of these sanctuaries are accessed off of the Eagle Harbor Township Conservation and Recreation Area trail system except for Redwyn’s Dunes Nature Sanctuary. The sanctuary consists of deep orange sandy soil and is covered in cedar, balsam, black spruces, red maple, round leaf sundew, and many other plants. The bush trail ends near a small lake formed from the dune swale complex.
