As summer approaches, many of us find ourselves spending more time at the beach—including our feathered friends. Treading lightly on our shores and environment is incredibly important to shorebird survival and the health of our ecosystems. For the past 5 years, Audubon has been creating and inspiring programs that have significantly helped our beach-nesting birds in Connecticut.
Join birding expert Ken Elkins, Audubon Connecticut's Community Conservation Manager, for this online presentation and discover small actions you can take at home that will have a positive impact on the birds that use our beaches and waterways (including strategies for using plastic materials and recycling). Learn how you can help make a difference!
