Hi All,

Just a reminder. As usual, the Coastal Center grounds and parking lot will be closed to the public?from 4:30 p.m. Friday, July 3, until 9 a.m., Monday, July 6, and the gate will be locked for the weekend.?Fireworks are?Friday night, and a Police officer will be on duty?at the base of Francis St. for the evening to keep everyone off the "plover bar." Thank you for helping to reduce stress?on the terns and shorebirds.?? 

Also, please?stay off the Plover Bar during the nesting season. The less traffic the better. We have at least 5 pairs of nesting Piping Plovers, Least Terns, and American Oystercatchers?in the area, as well as 1000's of migrating shorebirds. It is difficult to keep the general public off the bars, let's not add stress from birders and fishermen.? Thanks...? Frank Gallo
