U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service - Migratory Bird Treaty Act

Marinwood CSD removed a huge patch (1000 sf+) of blackberry brush next to Miller Creek at the height of nesting season on June 17, 2016 in violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.

It is quite shocking because, Marin County prides itself in proper wildlife management. Marinwood CSD manager, Eric Driekosen  clearly is unaware of the legal requirements prohibiting the removal of nesting habitat during nesting season.  The area was scraped clean by a bucketloader and remains an eyesore with no plan to restore the area.

Not only is this offensive to those who value the natural areas of the park, the Marinwood CSD broke the law and should restore the park and institute new policy to prevent future mishaps.

Please write edreikosen@marinwood.org and come to tonight's meeting to voice your concern.
