Cedar Lake (Lagunas Sabinas) is a large salina (salt lake) in Gaines County. To the southeast and about three miles away is a small arc of sanddunes less than two miles long. The landowners of the dunes planted Hermelo Weeping Lovegrass on the dunes in the 1980s hoping to stabilize the dunes. Nearby areas of vegetated dunes are found. The 2009 class of the Master Naturalists were invited to tour two pieces of private property - one that had the open sand dunes, and another belonging to the family of Nathan Taylor, one of the students in the class.
The following photographs were taken by the various members of all three classes of the master naturalists 2007, 2008, 2009.
