About This Event

In 1981 there were only seven pairs of piping plovers in the entire state of Maine. After decades of hard work and dedication, in 2023 there was a record 157 pairs recorded! Come learn about this federally threatened and state endangered beach-nesting shorebird and what makes it so special. Helen Manning, a Biological Science Technician from Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, will lead an educational walk on the Wells Reserve’s Laudholm Beach to discuss the biology of the piping plover and the monitoring and management efforts that have helped this species begin to make a recovery. Pre-registration is required, email Suzanne or call (207) 646-1555 x116. Free with site admission.
