> 1) We are seeking 3 seasonal waterbird technicians for shorebird conservation work in the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds. Spend the summer outdoors with shorebirds and help to conserve them and get paid for it! Please see the details here: https://careers-audubon.icims.com/jobs/1743/coastal-waterbird-technician/job?mode=view
> 
> 2) The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service asked us to pass along that they are closing off the tip of Smith's Point (at Milford Point) to public access due to the nesting birds out that way. You can bird as usual from the Francis St. entrance and on the spit, but please try to remain out of the area of the Refuge beyond the private homes to the west of the Coastal Center on Smith's Point Road that goes towards the mouth of the Housatonic River and the salt marsh. The areas on the Long Island Sound side of the Coastal Center accessible from the platform and Francis St., including the spit, are still open as always.
