Installing Rookery Signs

Mid-Coast Texas Master Naturalists partnered with Keep Aransas County Beautiful (KACB) and Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program (CBBEP) to clean up Salt Lake islands and rookeries and to install 2 platforms for heron nesting and 7 signs to inform the public how to protect the birds during nesting season. Special thanks go to KACB president D’Ann Williams and Exec Director, Rosemary Pizio-White. Both did a tremendous job making this event happen. Also special thanks to Lindsey Brown with CBBEP, who put the signs and platforms together, delivered them, and helped install. It was the coldest 2 days of the year and so many people showed up and worked so hard! Amazing partnership. Thank you to those who made it out. I think we will have happy birds!

It was the two coldest days of the year…
