Please note: this is a conservation work-party trip to help create habitat for the Piping Plover. 

Come join the Manitoba Important Bird Area Program for our fall weed pull at the Riverton Sandy Bar IBA. We will be pulling weeds to make space for the rare and elusive Piping Plover, a species once common in this IBA, but not seen for a number of years. The encroaching vegetation has significantly reduced habitat for this and other breeding species, and the IBA Program and our caretaker, Joanne Smith, are determined to do something to rectify this situation. We will meet at 8:30 in the parking lot for hot coffee and maybe a few baked goodies, and at 9am we will head up to our weeding spot near the tip of the sandbar. Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear, gardening gloves if you have them, binoculars, water, a bagged lunch and a sense of humour! We will stay out until midday.  Please note that there is no outhouse at this parking lot.
