Annual Barrier Installation Day
May 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm
Help protect the terrapins!
Join us for our Annual Roadside Barrier Installation Day on Saturday, May 13th on the Margate Causeway!
Every year in order to ensure that we best protect the terrapins from vehicles, we perform barrier maintenance on existing barriers, install any newly fundraised and purchased barriers as well as perform a roadside and marsh cleanup to ensure our terrapins have a clean, trash-free habitat!
We need lots of volunteers to help us dig trenches, move the barriers, fasten them together, install fencing along the guardrails and get the nearly 2 miles of vulnerable terrapin crossing areas protected. Last year, we had upwards of 80 volunteers and need just as many if not more this year!
Kids are welcome (recommend 8 years and older) to help clean-up the roadside and marshes and even help dig the trenches or move the barriers around. We have a task for everyone! We will have groups assigned to the different sections of the causeway with a section leader to help assist everyone with the tasks at hand.
Please RSVP so we can get a better headcount and set up groups ahead of time!
More details about what to wear, what to expect, what you will need, etc. will be provided shortly!
Looking forward to seeing you there with your shovels in hand!
