Sea Oats

  Home>>About Us>>Sea Oats
The endangered plant, sea oats (Uniola paniculata), is primarily responsible for the stability of the dunes on Georgia's barrier islands. Without sea oats, the barrier islands would soon be destroyed by the ocean. Sea oats exhibit beauty of form and function characteristic of nature; consciousness of such a value in nature is one basis of environmental ethics. The illustration of sea oats by Allen Rowell is the official emblem of the EECP.
