It'll be "No Fee" Saturday at Trunk Bay this weekend. Dropping the $4 charge for a day is part of the Virgin Islands National Park celebration of National Park Week.
Park Superintendent Mark Hardgrove spoke to the St. John Rotary, updating the members about activities at the Park. He said North Shore Road repaving is progressing nicely; as far as Trunk Bay now. He also said Caneel Bay Resort is in negotiations to renew its lease to operate facilities at some of the Park's beaches for another 40 years, according to Rotary's Bob Schlesinger.
Hardgrove said revenue from things like Trunk Bay's regular beach access fee charge are helping finance almost $2.3 million worth of work including repairing masonry at crumbling ruins.
