String fencing and signage erection dates for Connecticut beaches in 
spring 2015 are as follows and the Audubon Alliance for Coastal 
Waterbirds needs all the volunteers we can get!

April 8th, 11:00 Long Beach, Stratford
Meet at the far west parking area.

April 10th, 11:00 Sandy Point, West Haven
Meet in the parking lot.

April 13th, 9:30 Griswold Point, Old Lyme
We recommend carpooling if possible which can be done at the park and 
ride commuter lot off exit 70 of Interstate 95 on Neck Road. The nearby 
businesses also have the only available restrooms. The group will meet 
up at the end of the private Griswold Point Lane for a 9:30AM start.

April 16th, 11:00 Bluff Point, Groton
Meet in the parking area and CT DEEP will shuttle people out to the beach.

April 20th, Cockenoe Island, Westport. Only a few volunteers can be 
taken. Please email USFWS Biologist Kristina Vagos at 
kristina_vagos at fws.gov for more details and to sign up.

Remember that any and all volunteers are welcome including those who are 
not monitors. These dates are rain or shine, but snow or thunderstorms 
will postpone them.

Volunteers should bring: work gloves, water, a snack, appropriate 
footwear, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and whatever else you may need 
avoid too much sun. These locations can either be quite cool or very 
warm depending on the day so dress for any weather. A pocket knife or 
multi-tool can be handy and a sledge hammer or mallet can be helpful to 
bring. Plan for heavy lifting and toting, but be mindful of your safety. 
Please email us at ctwaterbirds at gmail.com if you can make it to any of 
those first four dates. And please pass this on! It's usually a lot of 
fun with friends and good birding. Thank you!
