Thanks to Tiffany for the reminder.

I took the survey and want to encourage all of you who care about
wildlife to do the same.

As a frequent visitor to Marymoor Park and the Sammamish Slough
abutting it, I emphasized these points in my responses:

1. Enforce on-leash rules where they apply. A few dog owners are
adamant about letting their dogs run roughshod in delicate nature
preserve areas. Government officials currently do absolutely nothing
to require compliance with the law.
2. Enforce stay-on-the-trail rules. I see people off trail in the
East Meadow all the time, including during breeding season.
3. Enforce noise ordinances, including on Lake Sammamish and the
Sammamish Slough. Boaters regularly play music at a volume that would
make asphalt-shaking car stereos sound like music boxes.

I urge you to take 5 minutes to take the survey, and please consider
including the above points to whatever others you wish to make.
