@Glostaplover sharing updates from the piping plover volunteers

Thanks to city staff like Ken Whittaker, Gloucesters conservation agent, and  experts  like Kim Smith, volunteers have been inspired  to have some fun helping wildlife in our own backyard.  You can join in and follow their reports on Twitter

The  2018 reports are also logged here goo.gl/DPygNw

No sign in required for either format. There’s a link for the 2017 records, too. Last year’s monitors were all ages and a few commuted from over the bridge. One mother daughter duo from the tri-state area  scheduled a volunteer vacation in Gloucester because of Kim Smith and the city’s outreach!

As I write, folks have an eye  on the plover pair in the Good Harbor Beach parking lot (still) incubating 4 eggs (still). Sign up with Ken Whittaker for a shift  kwhittaker@gloucester-ma.gov. Last year’s post about how to sign up. Everything ramps up for chicks.

World Oceans Day Fundraiser, Beach Clean Up and Whale Watch

Saturday at 10 AM – 6 PM
June 9, 2018
7 Seas Whale Watch
63 Rogers Street
Gloucester, MA 01930

World Oceans Day Fundraiser, Beach Clean Up & Whale Watch

Public

(Tickets to our fundraiser are purchased on-site from a Sea Shepherd coordinator, we’ll be located at the 7 Seas pier where you board the Privateer IV. You can use cash or credit card. If you take part in the beach clean-up with us that morning, you can save $5 off your whale watch ticket ($35 instead of $40) or donate that to SSCS as well.)

In what is hopefully a new yearly event for us, we’ll be heading to one of our great historic New England towns (Gloucester) for a World Oceans Day fundraising event. Working with a couple local groups and organizations, we’ll begin our day spending a couple of hours helping clean up the beach. After a short break to clean up, eat or (for some) take your Dramamine, we’ll head out on what has always been a great day of whale watching with 7 Sea Whale Watch.

Please keep an eye out here on our event for additional details of our beach clean-up on Saturday morning. We’ll meet at the 7 Seas pier (right near where we will board the Privateer IV for our whale watch later) and head out from there. If you have gloves, buckets or bags please bring them… but we will have some on site if needed as well.

We had a Burnham’s Field clean-up and the people came and it was awesome

clean up - francescaWell, it happened again. We said, “Hey, it’s time for the spring clean-up of Burnham’s Field” and put out the word and the morning came and people came out of the woodwork to lend a hand. There was Gina Briguglio who’s been looking out for Burnham’s Field since the beginning  and Deb Salah who with her family quietly plants flowers in the field and shovels the walkways in the winter without asking for credit and nobody ever knows. And City Councilor Melissa Cox who’s been Burnham’s Field’s biggest champion in the City for years.  And Donna Ardizzoni and her One Hour at a Time Gang who clean up our city every weekend and as soon as they heard we were cleaning up the field raised their hand and said “How can we help?” and changed their plans last-minute so they could help out, too. And Aaron and Jamie and Brieana and Ambie and Bill and Steve and too many others to name. And so on a Saturday morning the people came to the largest park in central Gloucester and picked up litter and fixed a fence and cleaned over some graffiti and tightened some basketball rims and put up a community garden mural. And then the families came and the softball games began and the kids ran in the field and played on the playground and the sun shone over Burnham’s Field.

Burnham’s Field clean-up this Saturday morning!

All are invited to the clean-up of Burnham’s Field this Saturday, May 26, at 8 a.m. Bring a rake or broom or just yourself – we’ll bring the yellow trash bags. Burnham’s Field is the largest green space and ball field in central Gloucester, right across Pleasant Street from St. Ann’s church.

Can you believe it’s our 5th annual clean-up? This was the Good Morning Gloucester post a few years back by Joey, the World’s Greatest Headline Writer: “Burnham’s Field Getting All Clean And Shit! Lend a Hand April 21st!

It’s fun to look back at how much Burnham’s Field has improved in the last seven years – the creation of the community gardens, the world-exclusive Good Morning Gloucester video profiles of the Burnham’s Field gardeners, the construction of the new playground and videos where I totally held the camera sideways instead of right-side up. Check out this bunch of Good Morning Gloucester posts about Burnham’s Field.

So come on down this Saturday morning for the Burnham’s Field clean-up. There’s parking in the lot at 4 Sargent Street – see you at 8 a.m!
