Watch for Piping Plover Chicks on the Beach in Hampton and Seabrook

If you’re heading to the beach to beat the heat this holiday weekend and beyond, watch for endangered piping plovers raising their young in the sandy coastal beaches and dunes. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department reports that one plover nest has hatched within the last week, and another is expected to hatch after the Fourth of July weekend.  There are currently 4 unfledged chicks running around on beaches in Hampton and Seabrook.
