Here's a cross post from the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds, Audubon Connecticut and the Connecticut Audubon Society partnering to improve conditions for coastal waterbirds in Connecticut. Please help us out if you can!
We have received the string fencing dates for Long Beach in Stratford
and Sandy/Morse Points in West Haven from CT DEEP. We would love to
have as many volunteers join us as possible!
Points - Wednesday 17th 10:30am. Meet at the parking lot. Should take a
couple of hours. Rain date Thursday the 18th.
Long Beach - Friday 19th 10:30am. Meet at the parking lot. Not sure how long it will take. Rain date Monday 22nd.
should bring work gloves, pocket knife/scissors for cutting string,
mallet (if they have one), snacks/lunch, water, and sunblock. Depending
on the weather, a wind breaker might be necessary – it can be
surprisingly cold and windy on the beach in April. Plan for heavy
lifting and toting, but be mindful of
your safety. We do not want any injuries.
If you have
questions you can email Laura Saucer of CT DEEP (Laura.Saucier@ct.gov).
All volunteers are welcome including those who are not monitors. Please
email us at email@example.com to let us know you plan on going. Thank you all!
