Piping Plovers have only recently returned to nest along all five Great Lakes, and at one time fewer than 20 pairs made the area their summer home. Today, the Great Lakes shoreline hosts around 70 breeding pairs thanks to recovery efforts.

Join Audubon Great Lakes, MI Birds, Detroit Zoo, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore for a free webinar about the endangered Great Lakes Piping Plover, the recovery efforts to protect this charismatic shorebird, and how you can get involved. 

Guest speakers include:

Erin Rowan, Senior Conservation Associate, MI Conservation & MI Birds for Audubon Great Lakes

  • Sarah Saunders, Quantitative Ecologist for National Audubon Society
  • Bonnie Van Dam, Associate Curator of Birds for Detroit Zoo
  • Vince Cavalieri, Biologist for National Park Service at Sleeping Bear Dunes
