New Volunteer Monitor Beach Training

On Sunday, April 17 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. The rain date will be Sunday, April 24, and we will email you in the event of a cancellation.

Please send us your monitoring schedule at ctwaterbirds@gmail.com if you have not done so already, and thank you! Piping Plovers continue to arrive across Connecticut and we hope you're excited to see them soon.
