Programs at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge

(Continued)

As of April 1, most of the refuge beach is closed to all public entry in order to provide undisturbed habitat for this federally threatened species. Plover Wardens are stationed at the north and south ends of the refuge’s six mile-long ocean beach, as well as on the west side of Sandy Point State Reservation (this is an interpretive position).

Plover Wardens greet refuge visitors, informally interpret the refuge’s plover management efforts and notify staff of closure violations. Participants in this session will hear from and be able to ask questions of refuge staff that specialize in biology, law enforcement and visitor services. Attending the session does not obligate you to volunteer. Meet in the refuge visitor center auditorium. Registration is not required.
