String Fencing Dates - Volunteers Wanted!

String fencing and signage erection dates for Connecticut beaches in spring 2016 are as follows and we need all the volunteers we can get!

Wednesday, April 6th, 10:30 - Long Beach, Stratford
Meet at the far west parking area.

Monday, April 11th, 10:00 - Sandy/Morse Points, West Haven
Meet in the parking lot.

Friday, April 15th, 10:00 - Bluff Point, Groton
Meet in the parking area and CT DEEP will shuttle people out to the beach.

Remember that any and all volunteers are welcome including those who are not monitors. These dates are rain or shine, but snow or thunderstorms will postpone them.

Volunteers should bring: work gloves, water, a snack, appropriate footwear, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and whatever else you may need avoid too much sun. These locations can either be quite cool or very warm depending on the day so dress for any weather. A pocket knife or multi-tool can be handy and a sledge hammer or mallet can be helpful to bring. Plan for heavy lifting and toting, but be mindful of your safety. Please email us at ctwaterbirds@gmail.com if you can make it to any or all of these dates. Thank you!
