Fowler Beach nesting area reopens Aug. 29
The Fowler Beach area of Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge that has been closed since March will reopen Saturday, Aug. 29.
The closure was for the benefit of federally and state-protected beach-nesting and migratory shorebirds, including red knots, piping plovers, oystercatchers, least terns and other species.
The refuge had another very successful season, fledging federally threatened piping plovers and least terns which are endangered in Delaware.
