Vandenberg Air Force Base officials have closed Surf Beach for three weeks starting April 10th due to beach access violations during the Western Snowy Plover nesting season.
Portions of Surf, Wall and Minuteman Beaches close every year from March 1st through September 30th to aid in the threatened bird's recovery.
Rules posted at each beach outline acceptable beach use during the Plover's breeding season. Violators can be fined up to $50,000. If the maximum number of violations is reached, the beach will be completely off-limits to the public until September 30th.
According to the VAFB website, there have been 30 violations at Surf Beach so far this year.
