WHIMBREL POINT'S WEATHER DAMAGED SIGNS REPLACED.




Friends of Sam Smith Park
volunteers were out at Whimbrel Point over the holidays replacing the faded weather-damaged signs on the utility pole.

It gave them the opportunity to explain to curious park visitors the significance of that special spot, the best spot anywhere to observe the spring whimbrel migration, and to pass on the story behind the bench’s dedication plaque to Fred Bodsworth and his role in the fact that we can still see this beautiful bird and other passing shorebirds today.
