Hello all,

The e-mail below was supposed to go out last month.

President Obama signed the bill into law, honoring Billy Frank Jr., activist and tribal leader, on December 18, 2015.
It is now called the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.

My e-mail account was down in December. This may have already been announced on Tweeters.

Best regards,
Dan Reiff

Don't be surprised when we all stop receiving the great weekly bird survey reports from the Nisqually WF by Shep and Phil .
No, the the armed "demonstrators" in Oregon have not moved North to try to prevent us from visiting this American treasure.

The US Senate has approved renaming the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge for Billy Frank Jr . and building a memorial in the refuge commemorating the Medicine Creek Treaty of 1854. Very neat.
President Obama is expected to sign the bill into law.

I look forward to receiving the Frank reports from S & P.
