National Parks are No Drone Fly Zones

In August 2014, the National Park Service (NPS) enacted policy that prohibits the launching, landing or operating of unmanned aircraft (aka drones) from or on lands and waters administered by the NPS, which includes the boundaries of Assateague Island National Seashore. Please be aware that operation of unmanned aircraft within the boundaries of the national seashore would be in direct violation of this policy, and depending on the circumstances, may be in violation of wildlife protection, audio disturbance, or disorderly conduct regulations.

Avoid the likelihood of receiving a fine or court summons, and/or having your drone confiscated.

Outdoor Activites in the Mid Atlantic

Friday’s storm charge many area creeks, rivers and streams. Since the we are having beautiful weather today, many are heading out to parks and recreation areas to enjoy the unusually high waters. Check in advance to make sure the park you plan to visit is open, and to find out if they have any unusually long lines for admission. Otherwise, get out there and enjoy the stunning views!
