This is always a special walk.

Frequently there are pockets of
over-wintering birds. Great photo

walk to the beach and around
the refuge. Dress warmly and appropriately.

Founding President, Defend H20
From the Source to the Sea, Defending Clean Water and the Coastal Zone
Natural shorelines, particularly ocean beaches are dynamic transitional zones which are regularly being altered by the forces of nature—wind, waves and currents. Beyond the obvious ecological importance to diverse array of marine and avian species, naturally functioning shorelines are critical buffers against the damaging effects of storm surge on coastal development. With sea level rise accelerating in response to climate change, the urgency to protect, restore and effectively manage transitional zones for ecological benefits and coastal resiliency is more critical than ever
