On a cold and windy 4th of July, along the beaches of Bandon, Oregon, we met two American heroes who really made this holiday super heartfelt and memorable.

Meet this selfless couple, Laura and Steve, who have lived on the beach these last two months - 24/7 - keeping a vigilant watch, monitoring the endangered Snowy Plover who lives on Oregon's shoreline. 
They record observations on the local plover's habitat while providing information to beach visitors about the species!

Thank you soooo much Laura and Steve - big love and peace to you both!
