Subject: [Tweeters] Wylie Slough - Closed to ALL access until the end of September
Hi all,

In case you don't know this - they are working on the dike(s) at Wylie
Slough and the entire area is closed to all access. The posted schedule
says "August 1 to September 30" ... whether or not they will finish
early (or late) is unknown and I suspect we won't get much notice of
any changes ... perhaps only if we periodically go to the site and
check the posting at the gate at the end of Wylie Road.

On other news about Wylie - it appears to this observer that the
attempt to mitigate the cattails at Wylie is a total failure. I
can't tell any difference ... now.

What did happen, however, is that the habitat was seriously
impacted for several months and it is possible that it will take
more time for the birds that used to be so reliably present to
return to Wylie. On that score it will be "we shall see". Of
course we will have to wait until Wylie is re-opened after the
work on the dike is completed ... *sigh*.
- Jim
