COVID-19 UPDATE (MARCH 31, 2020)
TNC’s public preserves in Virginia remain open. We ask all visitors to follow current health and safety precautions, including guidance from the Governor’s Stay-at-Home Executive Order issued March 30, 2020, the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), including maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet from others (social distancing).
Parking may be limited at many of our preserves. If parking areas are full, please plan to return to the preserve another day.
If you choose to visit a TNC preserve, please follow preserve access guidelines, and check back here for updates as the current situation is changing rapidly.
Thank you for helping us in our efforts to protect our visitors’ health and well-being.
Strategically located on a peninsula jutting into the Chesapeake Bay, New Point Comfort is a key stopover point on the Atlantic Flyway for neo-tropical songbirds and other migratory birds. Here you'll find three major natural habitats: tidal salt marsh, maritime forest, and sandy beach.
Why TNC Selected This Site
New Point Comfort was acquired by TNC as part of our efforts to protect Chesapeake Bay habitats.
