We are officially BIPS Stewards!!
Bird Island Coastal Reserve, Sunset Beach, NC
Bird Island Preservation Society
We recently attended a meeting of the Bird Island Preservation Society to find out about becoming a Steward. The meeting was held in the home of Bill Ducker, the Chair of the Bird Island Preservation Society.
This is a volunteer position where we will walk on the beach during the months of June through August providing an active and visible presence for the public. As Bird Island Preservation Society (BIPS) Stewards, we are looking for the cooperation of the public to obey posted regulations and to provide information about Bird Island. As Stewards we are asked to wear our BIPS Steward tee shirt and hat so the public can easily identify us.
Bird Island can be reached by walking west on Sunset Beach. You can also reach Bird Island by way of the 40th Street walkway and walking west on Sunset Beach. The area is marked with signs on the beach just past the walkway.
"Bird Island is the last undeveloped barrier island in Brunswick County and is one of a few remaining natural barrier islands in the Mid-Atlantic Region."
The island is home to a wide variety of animals (Red fox, goats, deer, rabbits) and birds, rare plants, high natural dunes as well as the famous "Kindred Spirit". The area is also a natural habitat for nesting loggerhead sea turtles and water birds (tern and gull)
We are honored to be part of the Bird Island Preservation Society as volunteers in the Steward program. We were given our "official" tee shirts during the meeting and will receive our hats at the next meeting.
