Thank you to the Johnson Family of Wakefield and Connecticut for their interest in learning about the Piping Plovers and for giving them the space they needed when trying to get to the creek.
Volunteer monitor Laurie Sawin spent time with the family on Wednesday, sharing her binoculars and teaching the young conservation-minded kids all about Piping Plovers and their habitat. The kids were so interested and considerate of the birds, it was a joy to meet them!
People love the portable new signs, both beach goers and the volunteer monitors. The signs provide an opportunity for beach guests to ask questions and learn about the PiPls, and they also provide a reference for the monitors. Many thanks to volunteer monitor Heather Hall for sharing a photo online of the signs used at PiPl protected areas in Ontario.
Our PiPl family are finding lots of fat sea worms at the creek.
As an ex-New Yorker living in NM and dreaming of Gloucester, I go to GMG often. I so much enjoy your extraordinary photography, love of nature and activism on behalf of the Monarchs and Piping Plovers. I know you’ll be happy with the article below.
