To protect wildlife and to keep our beaches clean, the "Leave No Trace" ordinance is strictly enforced from Spring Break until Labor Day.
The Leave No Trace ordinance (N. 19-017 Sec. 8-27) prohibits leaving items such as canopies and miscellaneous beach gear unattended between the hours of sunset and sunrise. The items collected during those hours by the Park Board Beach Cleaning crew are photographed, logged and brought back to CZM lot to be disposed of.
These items cannot be retrieved by the public after they are collected. Once they are removed, they are disposed of.
