Help Connecticut’s waterbirds

Posted on Apr 2, 2014

Connecticut volunteers and citizen scientists, can you assist in erecting string fencing and signage for Piping Plovers and other waterbirds?

The first date is tomorrow at Sandy/Morse Points in West Haven at 10:00AM where our group will meet in the parking lot. Volunteers should bring: work gloves, water, a snack, appropriate footwear, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and whatever else you may need avoid too much sun. These locations can either be quite cool or very warm depending on the day so dress for any weather. A pocket knife or multi-tool can be handy and a sledge hammer or mallet can be helpful to bring. Plan for heavy lifting and toting, but be mindful of your safety.

More fencing dates across Connecticut where we need your help are listed here in the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds blog. Additionally another date for 4/8 at Griswold Point in Old Lyme can be found here with detailed directions.

Thank you all very much and enjoy the beginning of field season!
