HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. — Let the nests rest.

Officials at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park say they’ve had reports of folks violating the partial closures to protect the nesting peregrine falcons at Maryland Heights, especially around some of the rock outcroppings.

The park service says the falcons (both parents and young) need the extra room to successfully breed, nest, hatch, and fledge.
They ask visitors to please respect the fencing and signage, and report any violations to the park dispatch office: 240-469-7281 or [email protected].
