Subject: [Tweeters] Skagit Game Range to be closed for shorebird season
Dear Tweeters,
Today, the 23rd July, at the Skagit Wildlife Management Area's Headquarters Unit, AKA Game Range or Wylie Slough, paper notices were tacked up here and there. They state that the unit will be closed from August 1 through September 30. It is some sort of dike maintenance or alteration project.
When shorebird season gets going, as it soon will, at least the Fir Island Farm Reserve ("Hayton") and Jensen Access will be open, as best I know.
The mud at the Game Range is being filled in with a thick growth of reedy plants now. One hopes that some shorebird habitat will remain.
Yours truly,
Gary Bletsch
