The Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve, a favorite birdwatching location in the heart of the San Fernando Valley, is under threat.  Please read what the San Fernando Valley Audubon website says about the proposal to hold a three day mega concert in Woodley Park this coming October at www.sfvaudubon.org .  Then sign the petition against it.  It will help if you explain why you care in the comments area of the sign-on page.  Your sign-on is most effective before this Thursday, March 24.

Or, go directly to the petition to sign on.

I’ve already signed the petition, and I urge all readers to do so as soon as possible.

    Can they insist on an environmental impact study before the event is allowed?

      I don’t know, but I’ll forward the question to San Fernando Valley Audubon who are the lead organization on this. If I hear back, I’ll post it here.

        The answer from SFVAS was: “Yes, the Army Corps can insist on an EIS before the event is allowed, if they think the impacts are so significant as to make it necessary.”

        Perhaps if they hear enough complaints and see enough petitions from the public, the Army Corps of Engineers will do just that.
