Carcross Bridge Construction, 2007

The Carcross dune system is one of the very few places in the world where the little grass seen in this photo grows. Although common here, Baikal sedge (Carex sabulosa) is listed as a "threatened" species by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), and a patch of 80-100 plants is protected at the material unloading area by this snow fence.
