Development in Sierra Madre

Feb

From Laura Garrett, conservation chair:
The 88-acre Mater Dolorosa Monastery is planning to sell 15-20 acres of its property to a developer who plans to build several houses there. This is potential Spotted Owl territory. CA Fish & Wildlife has already been apprised of the situation.

A coalition of Sierra Madre folks, including the Sierra Madre Mountain Conservancy, has begun the work of trying to stop this project. If you are interested in learning more, please visit www.stopmonasteryhousingproject.com.

Merlin takes you through a five question process and only deals with the
over 280 of the most common birds in North America. It has the added bonus of using

Save Hahamongna

Dec
19

From Laura Garrett, our conservation chair:

Birders: Some of you have asked me about the situation at Hahamongna. It is not good at all. The County is collecting comments right now about their plan to permanently remove 42-120 acres of habitat from the dam up to JPL. In their draft EIR, they said the impacts to recreation, including birding would be "minimal." It is critical that we tell them this is simply not true. Their plans also permenently destroy the habitat where the Least Bell's Vireo nested in 2012.
