Volunteer Bird Stewards are needed to protect Beach-nesting bird sites! Least Terns and Black Skimmers are nesting on Mississippi coastal beaches! 

Volunteers are needed beginning now through August to protect beach-nesting birds and educate beach-goers. Audubon can provide a tee shirt, chair, umbrella, binoculars, and educational hand-outs to all interested parties. Shifts are flexible and can occur anytime!
