      Volunteers are needed to survey all possible wintering sites in LA
      County for populations of threatened Western Snowy Plover (Charadrius
      alexandrinus nivosus) to collect data for U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
      and California Fish & Game Commission on the status of this species. The
      survey has traditionally been led by Santa Monica Bay Audubon Society
      and is now joined by Los Angeles Audubon Society in a partnership with
      SWCA Environmental Consultants and the wildlife agencies to survey,
      monitor and protect Snowy Plovers and Least Terns on LA County Beaches
      throughout the wintering and breeding seasons, and to maximize efforts
      of public education and outreach.



      Leaders and participants from past efforts by SM Bay Audubon are needed
      as team leaders.
