Buxton Woods Coastal Reserve Site Reopened to Visitors
RALEIGH – The Buxton Woods Coastal Reserve on Hatteras Island has been reopened to visitors following an assessment of damage from Hurricane Earl.
Roads and trails on the reserve site required some clearing by N.C. Division of Coastal Management staff. They are now available for visitor use.
The Buxton Woods Coastal Reserve is one of 10 components of the N.C. Division of Coastal Management’s Coastal Reserve and National Estuarine Research Reserve, which protects coastal lands, waters and marshes for research, education and compatible traditional uses.
