> There is a project taking off in Washington and across the country to help

> Washington are getting involved in the program.
> The Teton Raptor Center is sponsoring a project to prevent birds and small
> mammals from entering vault toilet ventilation pipes. Each year thousands
> of birds get stuck, suffer and die in open vertical pipes. The Raptor
> Center has partnered with 32 states and has made available a simple fix
> that includes an inexpensive screening device. Please see their web site

> As you walk the trails enjoying the birds and other wildlife, please be
> observant of vault toilets with open vents. If you see one, contact the
> proper authority and request that it be screened. Also, if you have open
> pipes on your property, such as sign posts, fences, building plumbing
> vents, survey markers and irrigation systems, please cap or screen them.
> There are several commercial products available. For additional
> information, please contact the Kittitas Audubon Society.
