Next week we have two more string fencing removal dates set by CT DEEP. The Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds would appreciate any volunteers who could help us out at:
Long Beach, Wednesday August 30th at 10 a.m.
Sandy Point, Wednesday September 6th at 10 a.m.
not only helps AAfCW but it also greatly aids CT DEEP staff and their
busy schedules. It also limits the stress on our birds. Please remember
that taking down fencing in late summer can
be physically demanding because of the potential heat and humidity, and
those who join us should remember a few things:
-wear sunscreen and a hat
-drink plenty of water or sports drink and bring a snack
not attempt to carry too many stakes as there will be enough volunteers
and staff members so that no one should overexert themselves
-anyone who needs to limit physical exertion should stick to winding up string rolls
-take as many breaks as needed
general we look for everyone we can to help out even if you are not a
past monitor or volunteer - the more the merrier. It also makes for a
more pleasant morning of bird watching and discussions on the beach.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can join us, and thank you!
