Razor clam diggers need to avoid closed areas at Twin Harbors beaches

For those planning on heading to the coast for the final spring razor clam digs at Twin Harbors this Saturday to Monday need to be aware of some area closures.

Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish biologist says, it is very important to avoid entering the signed upland beach areas at Twin Harbors, which are closed to protect nesting western snowy plovers.

“The closed areas are located from just south of Midway Beach Road to the first beach-access trail at Grayland Beach State Park, and are well above the high tide line,” Ayres said. “It is not necessary to enter these areas to access the beach, park your vehicle or to dig razor clams. Please obey the signs.”

A description of each beach and a map can also be found at the state Fish and Wildlife website.
