The Monmouth County Audubon Society will host a walk at Seven Presidents Park on Saturday, April 12 at 10:00 am for a look at nesting shorebirds and the role of the shorebird monitor program
in their protection.

Seven Presidents Park, one of the jewels in the crown of the Monmouth County Park System, is a waterfront
preserve that features a wide, white-sand beach, extensive dunes, and children’s activity area. 

This park is a great birding destination at any season, with sea birds and ducks off the ocean in the winter, and shorebirds in the spring and summer. The park plays host to many of the
area’s nesting Threatened and Endangered shorebirds, such as Piping Plover, Least Tern, American Oystercatcher, and others. 

We will bird around the park, and we will also discuss the role of the shorebird

monitor in conservation and protection efforts and how people can join

the volunteer ranks of the shorebird monitors. The morning promises to

be interesting and fun.

Anyone interested in participating in the event
can meet at 10:00 am in the north parking lot (corner of Ocean Avenue North and Atlantic Avenue) outside the Skateplex.

The trip is open to both

members and non-members of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, and

participation is free. Advance registration is not required. Participants

should dress appropriately for cold temperatures, which are common along the

coast at this time of year. Binoculars are essential, and a field guide is

helpful. Pets are not permitted.
