Cape Lookout National Seashore says it will have to cut park operations and leave positions vacant because of sequestration cuts.
Cape Lookout says it has to reduce its budget by 5%, meaning it will have to cut $123,417 between now and September 30th.
Because of the cuts, the Harkers Island Visitors Center will be closed on weekends until further notice, while ranger-led interpretive programs offered at the Cape Lookout Lighthouse will be discontinued.
The park says it will also have to leave unfilled one full-time and two seasonal positions this year.
