Hey tweets, for those of you who bird UBNA (aka Montlake Fill), we have an opportunity to voice our support/concerns about this use of habitat at the Fill. The UW Farm Advisory Committee wants to hear from the community about its 5-year strategic plan for the farm.

They have created a survey that you can access at:

The survey must be completed by Feb. 9th. It takes about 5 minutes to complete.

FYI, when I completed the survey, I voiced a concern about expanding the Youth Farm south into the grasslands between the Youth Farm and the Loop Trail. I asked that future considerations of land use be mindful that we need to preserve the grasslands for ground-nesting prairie birds (mainly Savannah Sparrows). This is particularly important now, given how much of the former grasslands have been converted into unneeded scrubby bushes, due to the disastrous (IMO) WSDOT miitigation plan. - Connie, Seattle
