Dunes in Orchid


Following the impact on our beach of Hurricane Irma and Nor'easter storms that have since followed, the dune system in Orchid has receded and is therefore more vulnerable to human damage as well. Please be careful around the escarpment area; there should be no walking on the dunes and it is best to keep some distance from the bottom of the dunes as well.

The Mayor writes a regular newsletter to keep Orchid's residents abreast of the latest news in town. Town Staff sends this out via email and regularly shares information from Town Hall as well. To see an archive of letters emailed to residents, visit the  Letters Archive  page of this website under the header Residents.
