Talking about waterbirds

This past Wednesday, May 21, President & Executive Director of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History Dr. Twan Leenders spoke at RTPI on various topics that included the initiatives we are participating in to engage more people in environmental outreach and stewardship efforts. RTPI became an official partner in the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds this season to bolster the already impressive efforts across Connecticut and spread the word of our mission even further.

Twan explained to our audience how AAfCW functions with our volunteer monitors being deployed across the state working with our seasonal staff as well as CT DEEP and USFWS.

Twan also spoke on the species involved like the Piping Plover.

With tomorrow being Memorial Day weekend we hope you will be speaking to as many people as you can on the beach - or anywhere - about our waterbirds and why sharing the beach is important. Let's get everyone we can to be amazed at what our "backyard" has to offer and energized to get to know our natural "neighbors" a little better!
