The Piping Plover – with NHFG Biologist Brendan Clifford

The Piping Plover – Natural History, Current Challenges and a Hopeful Future, with NHFG Biologist Brendan Clifford

If you’re heading to the beach this weekend or anytime this summer, watch for endangered piping plovers raising their young on Hampton and Seabrook beaches. Piping plovers are listed as a federally threatened species along the Atlantic Coast, from North Carolina to Maine, and they are state endangered here in New Hampshire. Their breeding habitat has been fenced with yellow roping to indicate the birds’ presence to beachgoers and to allow the mating pairs adequate room to nest and raise their young.

Join us for an evening with Brendan Clifford, a wildlife biologist with Fish and Game’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program who oversees the piping plover protection effort, for an informational program about these fascinating birds and the many ways that you can help them!  The goal of this project is to protect these rare birds during their breeding season and manage the beaches for both people and wildlife.  Come and learn how you can be a part!

Be sure to reserve your spot today as spots are limited.
