An Epic Journey:
Red Knots and the Western Atlantic Flyway

Every year, around this time, a small bird makes a huge trip from the southern hemisphere to the Arctic circle - with many stopping on New Jersey's Delaware Bay beaches.

On Wednesday, May 13 at 2 p.m., you can fly along with the American Littoral Society's Tim Dillingham and Janet Essley, artist and creator of The Red Knots Project, as they take you on An Epic Journey: Red Knots and the Western Atlantic Flyway.

The free webinar will focus on the Littoral Society's work to protect and restore habitat for shorebirds and horseshoe crabs, as well as Janet's experience representing their journey through art.

Zero Waste Workshop 

Join the American Littoral Society for a Zero Waste Workshop via Zoom at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13. Registration is pay what you can. Click here to register and receive the Zoom link.

Attendees will hear tips about how to live a more sustainable lifestyle. The workshop will include:
  • Ways to reduce your impact on the environment
  • Stats/facts on pollution 
  • Easy switches - including how to cut out plastic cutlery even when you're eating on the run
  • Alternatives to plastic containers
  • Where to shop - Such as online sites that offer reusable products or grocery stores that offer bulk or plastic free shopping
Art to Benefit Conservation:
Buy a Limited Edition Red Knot Shirt
Artist Janet Essley and biologist Lee Tibbitts collaborate with organizations to use the artwork of Red Knots: A Cultural Cartography to promote conservation, environmental, and educational efforts.

As a result, for a limited time, you can purchase a Red Knot shirt and the proceeds will benefit the American Littoral Society. The picture on the shirt is entitled Endurance: Multi-day, Non-Stop Migration Flights.

These limited edition shirts come in long- and short-sleeve styles, multiple colors, and sizes for adults and youth. Orders will ship directly to you beginning June 2.

The American Littoral Society restores ecologically healthy and resilient coastal habitats along the Atlantic Ocean and within the Delaware Bay region. The horseshoe crab is a fundamental part of the Delaware Bay's ecology and is essential to the life cycle of migratory birds, like the Red Knot. We rebuild beaches so the crabs can reproduce and the birds have places to feed. 

The Red Knot Project was intended to create visual art that would help the general public appreciate the needs of one species of shorebird whose existence is threatened by loss of habitat. Essley's paintings chart the migration of Red Knots through styles of art used in the many regions that the birds inhabit during the year.
