From 14-05-16 to 15-05-16

Join us in Nova Scotia at White Point Beach Resort for our 2nd International gathering and celebration of the endangered, migrating shorebird the Piping Plover. We will make hand-made signs for use on our beaches here in Nova Scotia, and share an afternoon with representatives from Bird Studies Canada, Environment Canada, Piping Plovers Nova Scotia and special guest Todd Pover of Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey from 3:30 – 5pm.

We’ll also do a shoreside walk and monitoring project to look in on the nesting plovers who have checked-in to White Point for 2016. This is the 5th year White Point Beach Resort has welcomed the migrating and endangered shorebird, the Piping Plover, to our shores. With successful nesting pairs here along our resort beach on the Atlantic Ocean, following sightings of our banded 2014 banded plovers in Cuba and especially in The Bahamas, we continue to host an annual event to raise awareness and engage the public in a conversation about these endangered migrating birds, connecting our coastline in Nova Scotia, Canada to The Bahamas and beyond.  Please join us!
