Matt Palumbo started this petition to Suffolk Beach Campers

As we approach the 2021 beach season, we respectfully request an explanation of the anticipated protocol for closing the county park due to piping plover concerns. Last year as in years past a significant part of the park was closed due to what was explained as a threat to the nesting plovers that were significantly far away to the east of the park. The impact that these birds have had on many residents, and their families, seems to be out of balance with the perceived threat that we pose to them. The policy seems arbitrary and illogical. It is my understanding that, last year, the birds were thousands of yards away from the sites that were closed at the park. It seems as though it’s been a convenient way to limit visitation at the park. We would like to have a clear quantitative explanation of when and how the “almost certain” arrival of our little feathered friends will affect our access to the park. Please sign and we can send to the commissioner. Thank you.
