Thanks to everyone who assisted us with putting up string fencing and signage! Here are some photos from the effort at Long Beach.
Some of our latest storms have taken down a considerable amount of fencing, and our staff is always hard at work repairing damage at all beaches as soon as possible. The weather has provided some good days, and we are also assisting CT DEEP in exclosing many Piping Plover nests all over Connecticut. Remember that we want to monitor when it is between 50 and 90 degrees, to avoid very windy days, and to stay home if it is raining.
When reporting observations we do want to hear about negative data as well if you did not see any of our four focal species: Piping Plover, American Oystercatcher, Least Tern and/or Common Tern. The terns have been arriving in Connecticut over the past week.
You can submit data via this form which is especially helpful in that it includes all we need.
Or email it to this address: email@example.com
Or share it to that address via eBird, but please remember to include all the data and information we need.
Later this week we will begin to post weekly data and information updates on all of our beaches. Thanks again!
