Spend an evening on Sandy Hook with Monmouth County Audubon Society
Join the Monmouth County Audubon Society for a summer evening bird walk to look for nesters and shorebirds on Sandy Hook. The event will take place on Thursday, July 20, starting at 6:00 pm.
The trip will be led by members of the Monmouth County Audubon Society who are familiar with Sandy Hook and its birds. “The evening is a great time to explore the quieter areas of Sandy Hook,” explains Linda Mack, trip leader and past president of the Monmouth County Audubon Society. “We never know what we will discover on these summer walks – herons, shorebirds, American Oystercatchers and terns are all regulars – and we may be able to sneak a peek at Piping Plovers, the endangered shorebirds that nest at Sandy Hook.”
Anyone interested in participating in the event can meet at 6:00 pm in parking lot "M," which is the northernmost parking lot on Sandy Hook (5.7 miles from the entrance gate). Follow Hartshorne Drive, the main park road, north to Atlantic Avenue, then right on Ford Road to parking lot M.
The trip is open to both members and non-members of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, and participation is free. Advance registration is not required. Participants should bring binoculars and field guides and should dress appropriately for the weather, including clothing suitable for rain if the forecast is questionable. Insect repellent also is recommended. The walk will take place light rain or shine. Pets are not permitted.

In case of inclement weather...
We try to run our field trips even if there are showers
predicted. However, in the event of severe weather that would affect the
safety of the group and restrict travel, trips are occasionally postponed
or cancelled. The decision on whether or not to hold a field trip will
be made by 6:00 pm the night before. In the event of a cancelled or postponed
event, we will post a notice on this page as well as our Facebook page. Please check back if there
are any questions.
