Pleasure Beach Fencing Removal

Audubon Alliance staff will be headed out to Pleasure Beach on Sept. 11th  to take down the string fencing that protected nesting plovers this summer.  We will catch the water taxi at 10am from the dock at the intersection of Central and Seaview Ave. in Bridgeport and expect to be on the island for 2-3 hours.  If you haven't yet been to Pleasure Beach, here is your chance to visit this unique stretch of shoreline.

As has been mentioned previously, taking down fencing 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
-do 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

Please email us at ctwaterbirds@gmail.com if you can join us, and thank you!
