Information About Plovers

Piping Plover are extremely rare shorebirds in the Great Lakes and are listed as critically endangered. The St. Louis River Alliance is working with state and federal agencies to attract nesting piping plovers to Minnesota and Wisconsin Point beaches. Please join us in our efforts to protect their habitat and educate others about this rare shorebird.

Volunteer Opportunities

Unfortunately we do not have funding coming in on time to monitor piping plovers this season. Stay tuned for opportunities with the St. Louis River Alliance for next year! In the meantime, if you would still like to be involved with piping plovers contact sarahgrenberg@stlouisriver.org to connect you to other possible opportunities in the area! If you have been a plover monitor in the past, you can still report your findings.
