SOFO: On the Beach—Plovers, Terns, & Other Shorebirds: Adults/Children Ages 8+

Sunday, July 21, 2019

2:00 pm

Program Leader: Rachel Speckenbach, South Fork Natural History Museum
Environmental Educator

Piping plovers, a New York State endangered species, come to breed and
nest on our shores in late April. Least terns, commonly mistaken for
the endangered plover, are a threatened species in the state and
arrive mid-May to nest in large colonies among the plovers. Both
species make a “scrape” in the sand to lay their eggs and raise their
young. Join Environmental Educator Rachel to learn more about these
beautiful animals and why it’s important to protect them.
