1) Volunteer to be a Piping Plover monitor. Please contact Alicia Pensarosa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Heather Hall is currently working on a temporary schedule until one is provided by Alicia. Heather can be reached at email@example.com.
2) Please let your friends know the PiPls have returned and please share this post.
3) If you have a dog, and I know this is a great deal to ask, please avoid Good Harbor Beach. There are many other great places that folks can walk their dog. Beginning April 1st, all dogs are prohibited from Good Harbor Beach at anytime of day or night, including early morning and after the life guards leave for the day.
4) If you feel you must bring your dog to GHB, please avoid the No. 3 boardwalk area (their preferred courting and nesting area) and please walk your dog along the shoreline.
5) Join our Facebook page Piping Plover Partners.
6) Come to the Piping Plover Ecology, Management, and Conservation program at the Sawyer Free Library this Saturday from 10am to 12pm. This program is sponsored by the City of Gloucester’s Animal Advisory Committee.
7) Please report anyone harassing the PiPls to the police at 978-283-1212 and any dog harassing the PiPls to Gloucester’s Animal Control officers Jamie and Teagan at 978-281-9746.
THANK YOU FOR ANY AND ALL HELP GIVEN!
TWO GOOD NEWS UPDATES:
A note from Mayor Sefatia – A thirty day waiting period after the new dog ordinance was passed was required prior to any new signs being installed. The thirty days has passed and we will be seeing the new signs shortly!
Dave Rimmer from Greenbelt will be installing the protective symbolic fencing tomorrow, Wednesday!
Look for the Papa doing a fancy goose step during courtship. This is our Good Harbor Beach Mama and Papa courting last spring.
