Diggers are asked to stay away from signed upland beach areas at Long Beach and Twin Harbors, which are closed to protect nesting western snowy plovers.

At Long Beach, the closed area is located north of Oysterville Road from the state park boundary north to Leadbetter Point.

At Twin Harbors, the closed area is located just south of Cranberry Beach Road and continues south for approximately 1.5 miles.
