Make Way for Plovers: Reversing Coastal Bird Declines in America

Make Way for Plovers: Reversing Coastal Bird Declines in America Fri, Apr 24, 2009, 7:30 pm

Scott Hecker, coastal bird conservationist

Part of the Explorer Series of LecturesFor more than 20 years, Scott Hecker has loved plovers. As a CMNH Future Scientist and a boy starting his birder's life list along Lake Erie, he searched for these shorefront residents. But he didn't see his first until the launch of his postgraduate career at the Massachusetts Audubon Society. What came next is the history he presents in this lecture. Hecker, now executive director of the Goldenrod Foundation, describes the recovery of the Piping Plover, how one species is saving the barrier beach ecosystem, and his plan to conserve beach-nesting birds and migratory shorebirds throughout America's coastal playground.
