Subject: [birders] Social Networking at its Finest!
Now THIS is how I envisioned the Internet working so many years ago when I first migrated away from dial-up modems and community bulletin boards!



As the frantic nature of our de-centralized government becomes more and more apparent, it’s imperative we continue to collect the stray bits and pieces as we’ve been doing! So awesome to be associated with so many involved and passionate people regarding the natural world. Real Grass Roots kind of stuff!



There won’t be birds to watch if we watch the habitat and things they need disappear before our eyes.

Thanks for posting the link, Curt. I've put it up on Washtenaw Audubon's FB Page, and it's been shared by Washtenaw Safe Passage.

I also messaged Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum, both University of Michigan properties and requested that they look into opting out, including the

University.

Best,

Subject: For Opt Out - Please Complete Survey Link

Thank you for contacting the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). Due to the volume of responses, after noon on October 1st all new requests to opt-out of mosquito spraying activities for EEE must be made by completing the survey at this link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/EEEOptOut <https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.surveymonkey.com%2Fr%2FEEEOptOut&data=02%7C01%<7CGroetschK...>%7Ca9921fb992c24d1d487b08d746890bd5%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637055426728698740&sdata=9xyzB%2B5YpSepz1JdiZ0xaug2tYbnmtAZxVF%2FpM2wds8%3D&reserved=0>



If you are receiving this message it means we have not recorded your address and the survey link above must be used to request an opt-out. Only requests completed from the link above which contain the full address of the property and are received at least 48 hours in advance of planned spraying activities can be added to the opt-out list. If you are unable to use the website survey link, please call the MDHHS EEE phone number at: 517-335-8165 during the hours of 8AM-8PM.



Note: when your property is excluded, an additional barrier of 1,000 square feet around your property will also be excluded from spraying. Excluding your property can affect the ability of others to protect themselves against mosquito-borne illnesses near your property.



For additional information about Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) or mosquito spraying treatment, please visit: www.michigan.gov/eee <https://gcc01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.michigan.gov%2Feee&data=02%7C01%<7CGroetschK...>%7Ca9921fb992c24d1d487b08d746890bd5%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637055426728698740&sdata=Flo9MASfZr8XzwUmAGpKDnuK2bOoLqv86Pe%2FYcfocuI%3D&reserved=0>
