Piping Plovers along the Flyway: New Jersey, Bahamas, and Beyond
Time & Place
6:00 - 8:00 PM
The Wetlands Institute
Piping plovers are one of the most intensely managed and monitored breeding bird species in North America, including here in New Jersey. As a result, much is known about their breeding behavior, but until recently far less was known about them during migration and wintering. Recent research, especially in the Bahamas, has revealed new information about their wintering distribution and behavior. Todd will discuss these newer findings, as well as provide an update on their current status and reproductive success in New Jersey.
Admission: $3 for members and $5 non-members
Cattus Island Osprey Platform Replacement
Time & Place
11:00am - 12:30pm
Cattus Island County Park, 1170 Cattus Island Blvd, Toms River, NJ 08753
Several strong volunteers are needed to help replace an osprey nesting platform at Cattus Island County Park in Toms River, NJ. The pole for the nest platform broke at the base.
We will meet at the entrance to the Nature/Visitors Center at the Park at 11:00am. We will provide all tools. The site is accessible via land and walkable from the Nature/Visitors Center. Please dress accordingly. Since we will be working on the saltmarsh, knee boots or hip waders are recommended. Bring a pair of work gloves and some water to stay hydrated. Work should take no more than 1-2 hours.
Heavy rain will cancel!
Please RSVP to our event on Facebook or email Ben Wurst (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we know how many volunteers we have, and so we can notify you if we need to cancel this event.
