  • NOTE: Montrose Point, including the Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary, is closed to the public as of March 26, 2020 as part of an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The closure will last at least through the whole month of April. DO NOT attempt to access Montrose while it is closed – you could be fined or even arrested.
