Lee and Collier Shorebird Stewards looking for summer volunteers

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla.- Another summer is upon us and Lee and Collier Shorebird Stewards are looking for volunteers to assist with nesting shorebird monitoring.

These birds need help more than ever. If you or anyone you know likes to go to the beach and cares about the protecting the local species, you’re invited to go to one of the training sessions.

You will meet knowledgeable people and learn about the species that are sharing the beaches with us. The Lee County training will be extra special because we will be able to see the re-nourished area at Lover’s Key where hopefully some new nesting will take place this summer.

The following training sessions:

* Saturday, May 2 from 9 a.m. – noon at Lovers’ Key State Park. You can park at Tram circle and take it to Gazebo area.

This will include a light breakfast and some beach practice with birds and is open to Lee or Collier volunteers. All participants will be admitted free to the park.
