The opening of Stone Harbor Point to vehicles, a popular recreational spot, has been postponed an additional five (5) days until September 22nd in light of active bird nesting in the area. The opening was originally delayed from September 5th until September 19th, but there are still a few unfledged chicks out at the Point. It is believed that the chicks will only need about 5 days until they are able to fly. The delay in opening Stone Harbor Point to vehicles allows the birds to complete their nesting cycle without undue stress or disturbance, contributing to the survival and growth of their populations. This decision reflects the Borough’s commitment to responsible stewardship of its environment.
