Surf Beach reopens after Snowy Plover breeding season

Surf Beach is set to reopen Saturday.

The beach has been closed since June 6th because of the Western Snowy Plover breeding season.

The beach was temporarily closed from April 10th to May 1st because Vandenberg Air Force Base officials wanted to emphasize the rules and regulations on the beach.

When the beach reopened, there were so many violations, officers were forced to close the beach until the end of the nesting season.

"We have nearly 42 miles of coastline to protect and safeguard at all times. Whether it is our Security Forces members providing security or our environmentalists protecting our endangered species, we take pride in our installation. We would love to see beachgoers, both Vandenberg members and community members, enjoy the beach every day of the year, but we must adhere to the rules set before us in order to do that," said Col. Jed Davis, the 30th Mission Support Group commander.

Officers want to remind beachgoers that certain rules will remain in effect: no littering, no pets without leashes, no camping, no beach fires, no fireworks, no kite flying, no feeding wildlife, and no horses or ATV's except for authorized enforcement officers.
