Hey tweets, David Zuckerman of UW Botanic Gardens, asked me to pass along to all the birders the following message:
"We’re replanting once again along UBNA shoreline and would appreciate spreading the word that birders and others need to heed the signs and stay out of fenced areas so as not to trample the plants to provide them time needed to establish. The gravel loop trail is the only formal path in UBNA established for the visiting public to enjoy the vast public amenity UBNA is. All other paths are social and negatively impact vegetation and wildlife creating voids for invasive and noxious weeds to gain an easy foothold. And, as you are aware, shorebird habitat, i.e. mud flats, will be maintained along Central pond corridors as negotiated with WSDOT. The vast majority of the new plants going in along the shoreline are forbs and graminoids…these will only enhance shorebird habitat if they have a chance to take hold.
Remember, fencing is temporary and will be removed once plants have had a chance to root in.
Thank you for understanding and supporting this important UBNA restoration project."

> Good morning Bill,
> We made the decision this morning to begin installing the temporary fencing along the shoreline at UBNA today, to get ahead of weekend foot traffic. We will start at the western end of the shoreline & work our way east as we replant.

The two PDF attachments are the laminated signs we will be hanging on the fencing as it is installed.
