Audubon Louisiana's Coastal Bird Technicians, Kiah Williams and Kelly Dempsey, will provide guided bird walks at Grand Isle State Park to view many different coastal bird species, and get a close look at how and why Audubon Louisiana monitors Wilson's Plovers and Least Terns that nest on Grand Isle in the summer. There will be chicks on the beach for another month or so, and with a little luck, participants will get to see some of these cute chicklets. The walk will be leisurely, covering about ½ mile on sand. Grand Isle State Park also offers great fishing, beach/RV camping, and nature trails!
