The group that owns and operates the Currituck Beach Light Station in Corolla has announced it will delay opening its climbing season opening until next month at the earliest.
The decision by Outer Banks Conservationists comes as events and activities across North Carolina are postponed or canceled in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“We feel this is the best decision to help keep our staff and visitors safe and healthy,” said site director Meghan Agresto.
“We will plan to reassess the beginning of our 2020 season on April 1st and will make an announcement then,” Agresto said.
The light station on the Currituck Outer Banks, which celebrates its 145th anniversary of the first lighting of the brick tower his December, has been undergoing a face-lift over the winter.
