We also wanted to minimize the impact on birds resting on the spit, from the American Oystercatcher pair with their chick to hundreds of peeps and even the long-legged waders. Our great crew got things underway quickly and we really made rapid progress.
We completed the rest of our work while just as the thunderstorms on Long Island began to rumble a little more towards our direction. Thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to assist us, and if you would like to help take down some fencing with AAfCW and CT DEEP, please keep an eye out for dates at Sandy/Morse Points, Bluff Point, and Harkness Memorial State Park.
