Snowy Owls Return

Snowy owls have once again migrated down from the arctic to spend some time at the Jersey Shore. If you are lucky enough to encounter one, please keep in mind the following guidelines from the Park Staff:
Please do not enter the dune system to photograph them. The dunes are critical to the survival of this park and are very sensitive to foot traffic.
Please do not approach them.
Please be courteous of other visitors.
