Thanks to all who joined the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds 
(Audubon Connecticut and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute) and CT DEEP 
for fencing operations today in West Haven. Stratford's Long Beach 
fencing has been rescheduled for Monday, April 18 at 10:30AM. Please 
join us if you can help and email ctwaterbirds at gmail.com, thank you!

We have two more fencing dates this week:

The Nature Conservancy will be conducting its spring set up at Griswold 
Point on Wednesday, April 13. Low tide is about 10:30, so pedestrian 
access should be fine throughout the morning. They'll have a few staff 
and some invited members joining the work party, but any extra hands are 
appreciated. They will have a 9:00 AM meeting at the I-95 exit 70 park 
and ride in Old Lyme, and a 9:15 meeting down at the Point itself.

Friday, April 15th, 10:00 - Bluff Point, Groton
Meet in the parking area and CT DEEP will shuttle people out to the beach.

Remember that any and all volunteers are welcome including those who are 
not monitors. 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 or all of these dates. Thank you!
