Update on the Poo-Poo Project in Los Padres National Forest

May 15, 2019

You remember the Poo-Poo Project? Of course you do!
When completed, screens will be installed
on all the vault toilet vent pipes in Los Padres National Forest.

This solid beastie from the Teton Raptor Project keeps any and all birds out of the pit toilet vents.

Jeri Edwards sends me an update from time to time. As of May 4, donations were $1140, as of May 13, they were over $1400, and as of today, May 15, 2 PM, 36 people have contributed a total of $1566. Only $834 to go!

In case you’ve forgotten, this campaign is to save cavity-nesting birds from a horrible death in the Los Padres National Forest (LPNF). [They climb into the vent tube looking for a good nesting cavity, and fall down into the you-know-what, never to emerge unless they get lucky and a park employee extricates them. Ugh!] All funds received through this GoFundMe campaign go directly to the Los Padres Poo-Poo Project and bypass Jeri. The funds will be used to purchase and place screens on the tops of vault toilet vent pipes in Los Padres National Forest.

So it’s not too late to kick in a few loose bucks. Check out the current status at GoFundMe and leave a donation if they have not yet made it.

Many thanks to all for your interest and for your donations.
