Field Training & Fencing

On Sunday, April 12 CT DEEP and AAfCW will hold a beach/field training session geared for new volunteers on how to monitor and collect data for Piping Plovers and Least Terns from 10AM until 12PM at Sandy/Morse Points in West Haven. The group will meet at the parking lot before venturing out to the beach. Follow this link for driving directions and additional information on the site: http://www.lisrc.uconn.edu/coastalaccess/site.asp?siteid=383

Everyone should dress for walking the beach and remember appropriate footwear, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, a jacket and whatever else you may need avoid too much sun and stay warm on what can be a windy and chilly beach in April. You should also bring a snack, water, binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one.

Please volunteer to help us at the following string fencing and signage dates!

April 10th, 11:00 Sandy Point, West Haven
Meet in the parking lot.

April 13th, 9:30 Griswold Point, Old Lyme
We recommend carpooling if possible which can be done at the park and ride commuter lot off exit 70 of Interstate 95 on Neck Road. The nearby businesses also have the only available restrooms. The group will meet up at the end of the private Griswold Point Lane for a 9:30AM start.

April 16th, 11:00 Bluff Point, Groton
Meet in the parking area and CT DEEP will shuttle people out to the beach.

Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday at Long Beach where we also saw 1 pair of American Oystercatcher, 1 pair and 1 adult Piping Plover. Please email us at ctwaterbirds@gmail.com if you will be joining us for fencing if you have not already.
