You can help beach birds nest in peace
Did you know beach-nesting birds like Snowy Plovers, Black Skimmers, American Oystercatchers and Least Terns lay their eggs on top of the sand and raise their young on our local beaches?
To help Florida’s beach-nesting birds nest safely and successfully, Audubon and their partners post signs and twine around their nesting areas. For added protection, volunteers chaperon these posted areas on busy warm-weather weekends to educate beach-goers about the birds and the reason for the posted areas. Research has found beach-goers are nine times more likely to respect posted areas when stewards are present.
If you would be willing to hang out with cute chicks at the beach for an afternoon, Audubon needs you! Contact Bonnie Samuelsen to learn more: email@example.com (850-866-7152).
Walton area State Parks with opportunities are Grayton Beach State Park and Camp Helen State Park.
