Griswold Point fencing removal

Would you like to help out The Nature Conservancy in removing string fencing and signage from Griswold Point? The Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds is looking for any volunteers to assist our combined field staffs in this work at Griswold Point on Friday, August 30. We will be meeting at 9:30AM on the I-95 exit 70 park and ride and carpooling down to the shore from there.

Please remember that taking down fencing in August can be physically demanding because of the heat and humidity, and those who join us should remember a few things:
-wear sunscreen
-drink plenty of water or sports drink
-do not attempt to carry too many stakes, there are enough volunteers 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 if you can make it at ctwaterbirds@gmail.com, thank you!
