Some North Carolina Coastal Reserve Sites Reopened to Visitors

RALEIGH – Three North Carolina Coastal Reserve and National Estuarine Research Reserve sites have been reopened to visitors following an assessment of damage from Hurricane Irene.

Visitors should use caution when visiting the sites due to downed trees on some hiking trails.

The reopened sites are:

  • Currituck Banks National Estuarine Research Reserve near Corolla

  • Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve in Kitty Hawk

  • Rachel Carson National Estuarine Research Reserve in Beaufort

The Buxton Woods Coastal Reserve on Hatteras Island and the Emily and Richardson Preyer Buckridge Coastal Reserve in Columbia will remain closed until damage assessments are complete, and, in the case of Buxton Woods, until access to Hatteras Island is restored.
