Project sponsored by Keep Aransas County Beautiful (KACB) to provide rookery restoration in conjunction with the Avian Conservation Biologist, Lindsey Brown. The plan is to remove the debris and increase natural and artificial nesting structure for the birds. The work includes the installation of one additional platform on the larger island and spreading the existing cactus by cutting pads and planting them in the ground. The project requires active, but not strenuous activity and skills required are light construction. A little gardening skill would be useful, but not a prerequisite. Wear boots or close-toed shoes. You may bring gloves, rakes, and light planting tools, but some of these items may be provided. Volunteers should meet at the previous site of the Blue Crab at Rockport Beach (the Blue Crab blew away, but a sign is still there to the left as you drive towards the beach entrance,). Code RM: Other locations

To volunteer, contact D’Ann Williams at 214-334-7959 or dwilliams2483@att.net.
Lindsey Brown can be reached at 361-336-0313
