Tern Shelter Building Event

July 12, 2019 - Oyster Bay, NY

On Friday, July 12th, from 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM, join us in building shelters for nesting least terns and their chicks on Stehli Beach. These shelters provide much needed shade for the birds during these long summer days.

This shelter building event will take place inside the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center in Oyster Bay, NY. Please bring your own power drill with a bit for a #2 Philips screw (1 ¼” inch long) if you have one. We will provide work gloves, screws, and materials for the shelters. For more information and to sign up for this event, please email NYcoast@audubon.org.

Also, we would greatly appreciate extra supply donations so that we can build additional shelters. One shelter consists of two 8” x 12” pieces of ½” thick pressure-treated plywood, four 1¼” galvanized wood screws, and one 12” wooden tomato stake. Thank you in advance for your help!
