Volunteer Docents Needed for wildlife recovery at Sand's Beach, COPR

Can you spare 2 hours per week? If so, you could make a significant contribution as a Volunteer Docent or an Intern for the Snowy Plover Docent Program.

Plover Docents are trained volunteers who facilitate public outreach and education about the western snowy plover, a threatened shorebird species, and its habitat at Sands Beach, part of Coal Oil Point Reserve.

The Snowy Plover Docent Program (SPDP) was started in 2001 to assist with the protection of the Snowy Plovers at Coal Oil Point Reserve, and to raise awareness in the community of the importance of the preservation of this species and its habitat.

Docents provide a personal and friendly contact for beach users. They promote public interest and understanding, and in turn, dramatically increase the effectiveness of other plover/tern management efforts at the Reserve.
