Public meeting to improve wildlife habitat at Mayhew's Landing
by Clyde Morris
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service welcomes public attendance at an informational meeting to discuss an exciting new project designed to improve and diversify wildlife habitat on the Mayhew's Landing portion of the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Developed in cooperation with Meadowsweet Dairy, a group of wildlife-loving artists, the project will convert an existing cement silo into prime habitat for native swallows, swifts and bats.
The informational meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 8, at the refuge's visitor center, located across from Mayhew's Landing on Marshlands Road in Fremont. At the meeting, refuge managers will explain the project in detail, Meadowsweet Dairy will show their model of the silo conversion project, and Dr. Dave Johnston of
Santa Clara University, will discuss the enhancements for wildlife.
We hope you can join us. If you unable to attend this informational meeting, but would still like to hear answers to your questions about this project, please call refuge headquarters at (510) 792-0222.
