Become a Volunteer Monitor!

Alicia Fortin Updates from the Beach

Are you interested in helping species at risk? Do you like birds and spending time on the beach? We have a perfect opportunity for you!

It’s time for us to welcome our Piping Plovers back to Sauble Beach! As the birds prepare for the summer ahead, we should join them in doing the same. There are many challenges facing the Great Lakes Piping Plovers, but don’t let that ruffle your feathers! As a Volunteer Monitor, you will help the endangered Piping Plovers by participating in a citizen science project, monitoring protected areas, and educating beachgoers about the importance of sharing the beach!

As a Volunteer Monitor, you will have the opportunity to sign up for 3 to 4 hour shifts on the beach. You will be able to learn all about the birds while you share the joy of watching bird families form with other people who care just as much as you do. We also offer free Sauble Beach parking passes, sponsored by Bruce Power, to those who volunteer for 5 or more shifts on the beach!

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Monitor, please join us for our volunteer orientation on May 24th at 6:00pm at Huron Feathers Presbyterian Centre in Sauble Beach. Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Monitor and if you will be attending the volunteer orientation by emailing Alicia Fortin, Volunteer Coordinator, at coordinator@ploverlovers.com. Feel free to contact us with any questions! See you on the beach!
