What's New

  • August is upon us and August is the best month for shorebirds. Some of the more uncommon species we see this month include Red Knot, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, and later in the month, Whimbrel. The Montrose Point eBird Hotspot is your best resource for current shorebird sightings.
  • Parking meters have been installed at Montrose. See the Montrose Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
