Notes: This is the second part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore unit. It does not have as many fungal species as it is a sandbar, that shifts and turns over. While there is some established vegetation, very little of it remains for long.

In the 1920s long metal foundations were installed in the hopes of developing getaway homes for the wealthy. In the 1970s when the National Park Service tried using metal detectors to try to find these metal foundations out concern for public safety. No sign of any of these foundations were found.

Approximately every 25-50 years the center of the island gets washed out by a large storm and Long Island becomes and actual island.
