REHOBOTH BEACH (Jan. 5, 2017)
With predictions of snow in the forecast, DNRECâs Division of Parks & Recreation reminds residents and visitors that dunes should not be used for sledding or snowboarding.
âDunes contain fragile habitat and provide protection for the beaches and the communities that border them,â said Pat Cooper, Cape Henlopen State Park superintendent. âRecent storms have already caused some damage, so weâre asking the public to help protect the dunes in our ocean parks.â
Except for marked crossings, dunes are closed year-round to pedestrian traffic and activities in Cape Henlopen and Delaware Seashore State Parks.
