…and the Plovers Say Thank you, Santa Monica!

September 19, 2017

New Santa Monica Plover signage.

At our quarterly survey of the plovers on Santa Monica Beach North, we were able to install the new hard-plastic signage recently received from the Office of Sustainability of the City of Santa Monica. We hope this will help us maintain protection for our over-wintering –and maybe nesting! — plovers. Currently this is the most populous plover beach of Los Angeles County. SM Audubon pays for new fencing on an annual basis. We have committed and budgeted to continue this payment through 2022. To support the effort, please feel free to use the little paypal button on the right for your contribution.

Special thanks to Dean Kubani and Andrew Basmajian of the City’s Sustainability program.




We hope the new, colorful signage will help keep walkers, sunbathers and “campers” out of the exclosure.

    I have been twice to see them already. They’re there, and so cute, very touching. Thank you for building and maintaining the enclosure.
