WEST HAVEN, May 19, 2021 — The city received Audubon Connecticut’s inaugural “Share the Shore Award” on Wednesday, May 19, for its “incredible work” at Sandy Point on behalf of Long Island Sound’s beach and island-nesting birds.

Mayor Nancy R. Rossi received the award for West Haven during a ceremony via Zoom.

“The city of West Haven is thrilled to accept Audubon’s Share the Shore Award, and we especially want to thank those local community members who helped launch and grow this effort,” Rossi said. “In 2003, West Haven residents nominated and Audubon Connecticut recognized Sandy Point as an ‘Important Bird Area.’ Since then, we have seen volunteers, state agencies, students, Scouts, and more come together to make our community safer and healthier for people and wildlife.”
