It is the time for our annual Riverton Sandy Bar weed pull. held in conjunction with IBA Caretaker Joanne Smith, this is an excellent opportunity to roll up your sleeves and help recreate the Piping Plover habitat for which this area was once known.  We'll meet at 8:45 am at the parking area and then take the 15 minute walk out to the sandbar area together. We hope to pull weeds (which will most likely involve some birding) for three or four hours, depending on the weather. If you can even help for an hour or two, it would be greatly appreciated. Please bring gloves, hat, sunscreen, water and a bag lunch.
