Kick off the summer season by observing and learning about nesting shorebirds at the dynamic ecosystem of Demarest Lloyd State Park. A large sand spit provides nesting habitat for plovers, least terns, and diamondback terrapins, which are all nesting at this time. Other birds such as ospreys and egrets may also be seen.

Participants should bring birding equipment (binoculars or scope, camera, bird guide), bug spray, and footwear appropriate for walking along the beach and over intertidal flats (bird guides and optics will be available in limited quantities). Inclement weather date Sunday, June 18.

Cost: $8 Lloyd Center members $8, $10 nonmembers; children under 12 half price
