Savage Neck Dunes Closed Weekdays During Deer Hunting Season

Savage Neck Dunes Natural Area Preserve will be closed to visitors most weekdays from November 3 through December 19 for managed deer hunts. The preserve will be open to visitors on weekends during this time. The hunts help reduce deer browsing and trampling of the preserve’s sensitive resources. Savage Neck Dunes is located in Northampton County on the Chesapeake Bay. The 298-acre preserve is owned and managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Beach Access Closed at Jefferson Avenue

The Town of Cape Charles has closed the Jefferson Avenue beach access using erosion fence and burlap. This is the worst area where sand blows onto Bay Avenue. There is very little beach to sidewalk ratio in this area and no grass to help hold the sand. The new fence will help build up the sand in this area. A temporary wooden post will also be installed with safety rope fencing along the edge of the sidewalk due to the drop-off in this area. While this entrance is closed, the Public Works crew will be constructing wooden steps with a railing to be installed from the sidewalk to the beach. The maintenance entrance is close by and all other beach access points will remain open.
