The KAH TAI 2012 Initiative

While waiting for the town hall meeting, which is postponed until after the completion of Make Waves' feasibility study, we can allow ourselves to refocus to the greater issue at hand, which is the long-term plan for the preservation, protection, and habitat enhancement of Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park, in light of the fact that the lease of the area between the lagoon and Sims Way expires in 2012.

The Port would love to turn this area into boat storage and parking or worse. To keep this area a nature park, we need to organize public support for the park. If you know of anyone that wants to preserve our park have them send their email address to rosemarysikes@olympus.net.

Work is in progress on a PowerPoint presentation about the need to preserve the Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park. Stay tuned for an announcement of the first showing.

Fowler Stratton and Jill Silvers of the Jefferson County Noxious Weed Board have formed a partnership with Admiralty Audubon and the Kah Tai 2012 initiative to pull Scotch Broom in the park beginning Wednesday March 12 for six weeks. Wednesday times are 9:30-11am and 1:30-3:30pm. Saturday date and times are to be announced. Anyone willing to provide snacks and/or drinks for workers, email rosemarysikes@olympus.net. Come show your support for Kah Tai Lagoon Nature Park.
