A sand dune at Lost Resort and Casino in Nevada.
Lost Resort and casino in Nevada lost its sand dunes and other natural features after sand washes in.
The desert landscape was covered in the sand, creating an eerie greenish hue.
The dune was destroyed during a storm in 2014, and sand from other dunes washes over the dune.
A few days later, a team of volunteers was dispatched to help restore the dunes.
They worked for two weeks, cutting down the sand dikes and bringing it back to the desert.
After three months of restoration, the sand and dune returned to the landscape.
It took about six weeks for the dikes to be repaired, which required a full sand cleaning.
Now the sand is just beginning to return, the Desert Alliance says.
“This project is a step toward restoring the desert to its former glory,” the group said in a statement.
Last week, the group announced plans to build a visitor center and interpretive center.
There’s still time to save the desert from a sand tsunami.
