Subject: [LACoBirds] Long-term (future) Lancaster sewage ponds access, and a field trip
1. There will be a combined field trip to both the Lancaster Water
Treatment Plant (referred to by birders as the Lancaster Sewage Ponds) and
the Piute Ponds inside of Edwards Air Force Base (restricted access) *next*
weekend. They are using buses to take tour participants from one location
to the other. As soon as I receive the link for signing up, I will email it
out. [I think the tour that was supposed to happen tomorrow was at the
Palmdale facility not the Lancaster facility]

2. I have been working with a County employee who is not stationed in
Lancaster on the possibility of restoring access to the Lancaster sewage
ponds to occasional visits by birders (after the Bean Goose flies home to
Siberia, and we want to get Sabine's Gull or Baird's Sandpiper on our LA
County year list). He will need to discuss this with his higher ups. This
negotiation may take a while, so even if it does happen, there maybe a time
gap between the goose leaving and when a limited number of us are able to
resume access to occasional visits.

very significant and too small worth discussing."--Daniel Kahneman
