During the past 40 years, over 40 species of shorebirds (including rare and
accidental vagrants) have been recorded at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge’s
East and West Ponds from mid-July through October, with the greatest
diversity and abundance usually occurring in August. We invite you to
attend our 13th annual celebration at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on
Saturday, August 25. Activities include guided shorebird walks, family
programming, and talks from experts on shorebird conservation, shorebird
identification, and Jamaica Bay.

 For more information on the festival, contact NYC Audubon at 212-691-7483,
American Littoral Society at 718-474-0896, or Don Riepe at
donri...@gmail.com. The program is free, but suggested donations of $20 for
adults (children are free) to NYC Audubon are most welcome to offset the
festival cost.

Littoral Society and Gateway National Recreation Area.*
