  12. DNR: Holes in Silver Lake sand dunes 'not really something to worry about'Read the original story w/Photo

    Jun 28, 2016 | MLive.com

    While staff at Silver Lake State Park have seen holes in the dunes linked to the cavities left by old, sand-covered trees, no injuries have been reported and it's not something park visitors should worry about, Department of Natural Resources leaders say. The assurance comes after a researcher's findings mentioned the popular Lake Michigan beach area and another in Oregon as having the same kind of "migrating dune" phenomena that caused a 6-year-old boy to be swallowed up by sand in 2013 while he was climbing the huge Mount Baldy dune at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

    Mysterious holes that forced the closure of a massive dune at an Indiana national park after a 6-year-old boy fell into one and nearly died were caused by sand-covered trees that left cavities behind as they decayed over the years, researchers have found. Fungi on the covered trees formed a sort of cement that allowed the sand to keep its hollowed out shape as the wood decayed and collapsed inward, leaving holes more than 10 feet deep in the dune known as Mount Baldy at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, according to a study published in December by Erin Argyilan, who heads Indiana University Northwest's department of geosciences.
