Virtual 2021 SLT Annual Meeting

Title: Annual Meeting

Date: Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Time: 5:30 PM

Where: Virtual

Leader(s): Carolyn Mostello & SLT

The Sippican Lands Trust will host its 2021 Annual Meeting virtually on Zoom starting at 5:30p.m. on Wednesday, June 23. Sippican Lands Trust’s Annul Meeting this year will feature a presentation titled “Coastal Waterbirds of Massachusetts” given by Coastal Waterbird Biologist, Carolyn Mostello, who has been studying coastal waterbirds for over 20 years with the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. Mostello coordinates statewide conservation efforts for rare and endangered seabirds and shorebirds, especially terns and Piping Plovers, working closely with partners and landowners to effect beneficial management actions.

Mostello has led protection, management, and research activities for Roseate and Common Terns on the Buzzards Bay nesting islands including Bird Island in Marion since 2000. After receiving her Master’s degree in Zoology from the University of Hawaii in 1996, Carolyn began studying seabird colonies in the
Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and became fascinated with marine and coastal birds, which are among the most vulnerable of bird taxa. A brief business meeting will be conducted prior to the talk along with a short presentation of the accomplishments and highlights of the 2020 year and review of a new mission statement and purpose clause for the Sippican Lands Trust.

Members and friends of the SLT interested in attending this year’s online Annual Meeting can REGISTER HERE. An email will be sent to you with the information about how to sign-in to this year’s Annual Meeting on Zoom.
