Mississippi Shorebird Workshops

Manomet partnered with Delta Wind Birds, a local nonprofit organization promoting shorebird conservation in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture, to host two shorebird workshops between September 29 and October 2, 2015. Managers of public and private lands from six southeastern states gathered in Lambert and Isola, Mississippi, for workshops highlighting land management to support migrating shorebirds passing through the Mississippi River Valley Alluvial Delta.
