Monthly Program: Share the Shore with Shorebirds

  • Tuesday, March 19, 2024
  • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Venice United Church of Christ, Naar Hall, 620 Shamrock Rd., Venice


The threatened Least Tern has declined in population significantly in the last 50 years. These and other beach-nesting birds are threatened by numerous perils. Mary Lundeberg, conservation photographer, writer, and passionate shorebird protector, will talk about the life cycle of these birds, the challenges they face, and what people can do to help. Mary will illustrate her talk with images of the beautiful, threatened shorebirds and seabirds who nest on beaches in Florida (Least Tern, Snowy Plover, Wilson’s Plover, Black Skimmer and American Oystercatcher) and in Michigan (the endangered Great Lakes Piping Plover).

All are welcome - members of the public as well as Venice Audubon Members.

Participants are strongly encouraged to follow current COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
