We have two more string fencing removal dates now set by CT DEEP, and the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds would appreciate any volunteers who could help us out at these locations:

Monday, August 27th at 10:00AM - Sandy/Morse Points in West Haven
Thursday, August 30th at 10:00AM - Griswold Point in Old Lyme

Assisting not only helps AAfCW but it also greatly aids those at CT DEEP who have extremely limited time, and it limits the stress on the birds. 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 at ctwaterbirds at gmail.com if you can join us on either or both days, thank you!
