NPS Closure Update 8-17-15 Cape Point
Written by Frank   

Hi folks,

KissCape Point should be all ready to go for pedestrians! Tight lines everyone!
YellThe latest the Point would open for ORVs, per the 14 day, post-fledging wait, would be August 30th.Laughing We will look for additional opportunities to open earlier but there is no guarantee.
Take care,

 
NPS ORV CLOSURE UPDATE CAPE POINT 8-17-2015
Written by Frank   

SmileHappy Monday morning to everyone!

SmileSmileSmileAs of yesterday, all oystercatcher chicks at Cape Point have fledged. SmileSmileSmileThe least tern colony has moved on.  FrownWhile we do have a waiting period before we open the Point to ORVs, this morning the technicians opened a pedestrian corridor on the east side of the hook and from the former R45 to Cape Point.SmileFull pedestrian access to Cape Point is available without walking in the water.
SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileI will provide another update later today with estimated dates for re-opening the Point to ORVs.
SmileSmileAll the best,
Smile
