Breach Update

The newly installed berms to close the breach are beginning to be shaped by high tides and winds.  The breach channel in front of Osprey Walk is beginning to close.  Seedlings of sea oats, panicum grass and dune sunflower have been planted and over the summer will help to trap windblown sand.  We ask that you keep off the berms since they are planted to ensure our young plants are not trampled.  Over the summer we may observe shorebirds utilizing the top of the berm as nesting areas.  Shorebird eggs are laid directly on the ground and are colored to resemble sand and broken shells, and therefore very hard to see and easily broken when walking in these locations.
