The Program for our WOS Meeting this upcoming
Monday is an important one for all area birders.

As part of "mitigation" efforts related to the
Highway 520 expansion, WSDOT is planning
significant and troubling changes at the Montlake
Fill and Foster Island. We will present a panel
consisting of Larry Hubbell who will describe
what's happening around Foster Island; Connie
Sidles who will give an overview of what's
happening at the Fill; Susan North (Conservation
Manager for Seattle Audubon) who will describe
Seattle Audubon's efforts; and Jon Houghton (on
Seattle Audubon's Conservation Committee and a
mitigation consultant) who will talk about the
rules and regulations of mitigation and the
implications for Union Bay. Herb Curl may be able
to join us to talk about the latest changes in
regulations and what they might mean. And I am
sure Connie will have other observations to share
from her endless supply of stories of the Fill.

WOS meets the first Monday of every month at the
Urban Horticulture Center adjoining the Fill.
Social time begins at 7:00 P.M. and our program
begins at 7:30 P.M. Please join us for this
important event.

WOS Program Chair
