Piping plovers, federally-listed as threatened, arrive at the refuge between mid-March and early April. Once a full clutch of eggs has been laid, the refuge erects a wire exclosure around the nest. This keeps predators away from the nest, while allowing the birds to come and go. Interns monitor hatching and fledging rates.
