The Robert Nickerson Memorial Race is scheduled for August 1st, 2015. At this time there will be families of Piping Plovers and Spotted Sandpipers on the beach that are still unable to fly. They may get agitated from the high volume of foot traffic from race spectators. This should only be a problem for spectators at this particular race as the chicks should be able to fly by mid-August.
What you can do to help:
• Please avoid sensitive wildlife area along Causeway (south) side of beach.
• Use one of the already designated paths to go to the beach and respect signs and roped area.
• Keep animals on leashes for safety of people and wildlife.
Also, please take your garbage and food with you when you leave the beach area. NSBRA would like to stress that we want to do everything possible to help conserve the local wildlife. Thank you for your help and support. “Conserving bird populations and their habitats supports a healthy environment for every living thing – including us!”
There will be a Pre-Race meeting Tuesday July 28th at 7:00pm to the NSBRA Headquarters (upstairs at the Wm. R. Murphy Building) regarding the Robert Nickerson Memorial Race. All Racers that are dyno’d and racing in this August 1st memorial race MUST attend or have your representative present.
