Mayacamas Sanctuary UpdateMany thanks to the dozen people, aged 9 and up, who helped with work day at theMayacamas Sanctuary on Saturday, November 9. They removed a truckload of ironsheeting and other debris from a drainage channel, put up two screech owlboxes, improved the campsite area, dug and constructed a privy, and obstructedaccess to some trails that have been used by off-road vehicles. Another workday is being scheduled for January, probably the third Saturday. If you canhelp, please call Peter Leveque at 542-8946.
About 25 fortunate campers attended Madrone Audubon's second overnight at theSanctuary, October 5. They had great owling and a superb potluck dinner, whilecamped in a magical setting. We hope to have a Spring campout again in '97.
Our bird census teams continue to monitor their study plots at the Sanctuary.With six teams censusing two plots and completing Area Search Forms at leastonce a month, a lot of data is being collected. Coding and compiling theresults is Bridgette Voth, a student volunteer who is in her second year ofenvironmental studies at Santa Rosa Junior College. The census will continuethrough next summer or fall.
