Signs At Hatteras Reworded

The signs on the beach at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore are a little clearer now.

The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk reported that some people had complained about the signs posted to protect the areas where shorebirds nest.

The original signs ordered visitors to "walk in water where footprints wash away."

People complained the signs indicated they could not walk on the beach. So the Park Service has ordered changes for the 10 signs so they will read "Walk near water's edge. Stay below high tide line."

The signs will remain until the shorebirds start nesting. Then rangers will block off buffer zones where no one can go.
