Making Beaches Safer for Birds – 4/11/2023
April 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Corrie Folsom-O’Keefe
Each year, large numbers of shorebirds and seabirds travel along the Atlantic coast. These birds spend their winters in the southern US, Caribbean, and South American, then head north in the spring to breeding grounds in the United States and Canada. In late summer, these travelers, joined by the young of the year, begin the return trip to warmer climates. Beaches, islands, inland lakes, and rivers provide valuable winter, stopover, and breeding habitat. Attendees will learn about some of these amazing migrants, the threats that they face annually and management activities and programs that Audubon and partners have pioneered to reduce these threats. We will finish up with actions that you can take while visiting coastal habitats this summer that can help these beautiful birds reach their destinations and successfully raise their young. Please contact Fran with any questions.
