SANDY HOOK, NJ - Join the Monmouth County Audubon Society for a summer evening bird walk to look for nesters and shorebirds on Sandy Hook. The event will take place on Thursday, June 20, starting at 6:00 pm. The public is welcome; admission is free.

Six months after Hurricane Sandy, the Sandy Hook division of Gateway National Recreation Area is a different place. Many buildings on “the hook” were damaged during the storm, as were the multi-use path and the boardwalk on the bay side of the visitor center. Damaged or not, many birds call Sandy Hook their home in the summertime, nesting and raising families here. Members of MCAS will point them out and explain their life cycle on the hook.

The trip will be led by members of the Monmouth County Audubon Society who are familiar with Sandy Hook and its birds. “The evening is a great time to explore the quieter areas of Sandy Hook,” explains Linda Mack, trip leader and past president of the Monmouth County Audubon Society. “We never know what we will discover on these summer walks – herons, shorebirds, Ospreys and gulls are all regulars – and we may be able to sneak a peek at Piping Plovers, the endangered shorebirds that nest at Sandy Hook.”

Anyone interested in participating in the event can meet at 6:00 pm in Parking Area B by the beach pavilion.
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 bring binoculars and field guides and should dress appropriately for the weather, including clothing suitable for rain if the forecast is questionable. Insect repellent also is recommended. The walk will take place light rain or shine. Pets are not permitted.

The Monmouth County Audubon Society, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, is dedicated to the enjoyment and study of nature, wildlife conservation, habitat protection and education. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month September through May at Church of the Nativity, 180 Ridge Road, Fair Haven; guest speakers address a wide variety of nature-related topics, and refreshments are provided. In addition, the group sponsors at least one field trip per month, and members receive The Osprey, the club’s bi-monthly newsletter.
