Seasonal Fencing for Snowy Plovers @ Linda Mar Beach

Plover Fencing

Seasonal fencing to protect Western snowy plovers is now installed at Pacifica State Beach in Linda Mar. City of Pacifica teams from Public Works and Parks, Beaches, and Recreation, as well as volunteers from Pacifica Shorebird Alliance and Sequoia Audubon, worked together to install temporary symbolic fencing and signs.

Installed before the birds arrive in early fall and removed after they leave in late spring, this visual barrier makes it easy for people to walk around roosting snowy plovers, which are difficult to see. It is a standard tool for protection of shorebirds and has public acceptance at other Bay Area beaches and throughout California.

Protection of the Western snowy plover at Pacifica State Beach (Linda Mar) has been in process for several years. The symbolic fencing, educational materials, and some of the signage are made possible by a generous grant from the Audubon Society and administered by Sequoia Audubon and Pacifica Shorebird Alliance (PSA), a project of Pacfica's Environmental Family, a 501(c)(3) organization.
