Coastal Dune Lakes Documentary - Intro Video
July 8, 2010 by Kurt Lischka
The coastline of Northwest Florida is known as one of the world's most beautiful beaches. The lakes are generally permanent water bodies, although water levels may fluctuate substantially due to rain, groundwater seepage through the surrounding coastal sands, and storms. Sand dunes ranging in height from a few feet to more than 30 feet separate the lakes from the Gulf of Mexico.
The coastal dune lakes of South Walton County in Northwest Florida are rare and precious. This short introduction by Elam Stoltzfus is the first in a series he is producing on a journey to create a full-length documentary film for an international public television audience.
