Be A Good Egg
Share the shore with nesting birds and their young

Shelby Casas
Coastal Program Associate for Audubon NY

Shelby will be presenting on Audubon New York's Be A Good Egg outreach program and reviewing outreach event training. Audubon New York has been running this program at beaches across Long Island with partner organizations since 2013. This presentation will cover Long Island beach nesting shorebirds, all sites involved in this work, the program's history, the importance shorebird stewardship and how the chapter can be involved. We will review outreach training and creating positive engagement with beachgoers during Be a Good Egg events. 
Prior to her role with Audubon New York, Shelby worked with Audubon Connecticut as a seasonal Coastal Waterbird technician. She started her birding journey at Clarkson University studying Golden-winged Warblers population distribution in Northern New York where she graduated with a BS in Biology and focus on Environmental Science. Shelby oversees Audubon’s coastal bird conservation work on Long Island. She is trained in threatened and endangered species stewardship and monitoring, environmental education, and applied conservation. In 2022 she was awarded the Conservationist of the Year award for her shorebird work on Long Island by the Audubon CT/NY State office and is based at the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Center in Oyster Bay.

Gulls of Long Island
Kim Lato
Join Kim Lato, a PhD student at Stony Brook University and native Long Islander to learn all about our native gull species. Gulls might pester you at the beach for your lunch, however these animals are a critical part of marine ecosystems. In this presentation, Kim will introduce you to the common gull species found on Long Island, where they nest, what they eat, and where they are going. Learn about GPS tracking data of these birds, and how our actions as humans can impact the behavior of these animals. This free program is co-hosted by Eastern Long Island Audubon Society and Quogue Wildlife Refuge.
