Thank you, I am hoping we can convince Mr. Bjerke, Clark County Parks Manager, that this isn't just a local issue. The birds using this area also cross the Columbia River to Sauvie Island, in Oregon, and to the Ridgefield NWR. Even a simple message to him that people value the area for it's wildlife would help.

Tweets: My thanks to Wilson Cady for posting the info about the upcoming hearing and the possibility of a sports development. I can't provide you any information that is scientifically sound, but my feeling about the drainages surrounding the Columbia is that they will be very very important for wildlife over the next few decades as global warming sets in. I'm sure that all of you who are conservationists, as I am, would rather that our local governments err on the side of caution when it comes to influencing actions that could affect habitats for birds. I have spent enough time in that part of Washington to surmise there are plenty of alternative sites for disc fields. I can't attend the hearing in March but I weigh in.ronpost4 at gmail.com
