The Snowy Plover potluck at the cottage.

Friday Evening, June 12, 2007, The Snowy Plover team arranged a pot Luck dinner to thank Sophie and Lyn for their involvement in the easement process.

The FWS group arrived without getting lost, and took over the cottage, while Sue took a room in our main house. As they set up for dinner, our guest. Dr. Peter F. Brussard (http://www.unr.edu/biology/brussard.htm) of Biodiversity fame at UNR arrived, followed by Laurie Sada, USFWS, and her husband, Dr. Don Sada (http://www.unr.edu/biology/sada.htm) of DRI fame. Various people from the USFS and BLM Cedarville offices joined as the evening progressed. Through the evening, both Don and Laurie Sada offered any help to assist in assessment process, which Jan and I appreciated.

I didn’t make a large presentation, but kept my statement mainly to a brief conversations that night, listening to the input from others around the table.

The next day I showed the survey team how to access the lake edge from our meadow, giving me a chance to share some information with Sue, Dan (FWS, Sacramento) and Mike (FWS Ventura) along with Kendra, (I think USFWS from Portland), and another couple from Alaska.

Sue would soon share her findings as they relate to our farm, and compared to the whole valley survey.
