Hi everybody,

Seattle Parks is redesigning their natural areas/greenspaces policy, and an
invitation to participate is below. This result of this process will most
certainly have an impact on bird habitat in Seattle.

If you are a part of an organization and would like to participate early in
the process, the deadline to apply to be in the focus group discussion is
this Friday. The application can be found on the page listed in the
announcement below, but if you want to cut to the chase, just go here:

Subject: Natural Area and Greenbelt Focus Group Invitation - Will you join

Dear friends,

On behalf of Seattle Parks and Recreation, I am asking you to have a voice
in future park planning.

We want to hear from you!

We want a diverse group of organizations to share what they value about
Natural Areas and Greenbelts. We have hired a consultant team to host
several focus groups and ask organizations to send a representative to
participate in one focus group session. This process will result in a vision
that will maintain the native forest ecosystem, protect public safety and
enhance positive uses over the long term.

How to get involved

Focus group: Focus groups will discuss existing Natural Areas and Greenbelts
and their uses. Participants will identify priorities, share their opinions,
and develop supporting action items to ensure that Greenbelts and Natural
Areas are managed in a way that ensures their health and vitality, and serve
the open space and "breathing" room needs of the city.

. If your organization would like to participate in a focus group,
we ask that you fill out the attached Focus Group Application Form with the
name, phone number and email address of one representative from your
organization/group and a preferred date and send back to
susanne.rockwell at seattle.gov no later than March 6, 2015.

. You will receive a confirmation of your attendance from our
Consultants, Stepherson & Associates Communications by March 12, 2015.

Guidelines process, please visit the project webpage:


Thank you,
