Provincetown Life Information
A public information meeting will be held July 18, 5 to 7 p.m. at the Province Lands Visitor Center in Provincetown to update the status of the off-road vehicle beach closures necessitated by piping plover activity within the Cape Cod National Seashore.
The purpose of the meeting is to review current conditions and the events that led to the closure of the Off-Road Vehicle corridor. According to Superintendent George Price, “I am interested in hearing from folks that were impacted by the closures. I am hoping that the meeting will help assist Seashore managers, off-road vehicle users, and the community to work together on this important issue.”
The piping plovers are a threatened species. Plover management at the Seashore currently follows the guidelines developed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Piping Plover Recovery Team in 1996.
Current oversand corridor information is available 24-hours a day on a prerecorded message line and can be accessed by calling 508-487-3698. As soon as sections of the corridor reopen this message line will be updated.
For more information, contact Steve Prokop, chief ranger of Cape Cod National Seashore, at 508-349-3785, ext. 213.
