OB Town Council: How We Can Help the OB Parrots – Wed., May 23

Please join the Ocean Beach Town Council at their next meeting, Wednesday, May 23, where they will be discussing the OB Parrots and ways in which the community can support these beautiful and unique residents of Ocean Beach.

In particular the discussion will examine the City’s springtime tree-trimming policy, which often endangers parrot nests.

From SoCal Parrot:

“It is communities like yours that can start to make positive changes for the health of the ecosystems that we live in, especially in a time when we are seeing so many of our wildlife protection laws being dismantled or going unfunded.”

Hope you can make it!

The OBTC meets at the Masonic Center, 1711 Sunset Cliffs Blvd, San Diego, CA 92107-3214, from 7 PM – 8:30 PM. Everyone’s welcome.

BTW, do you know who Marcus Turner is? The new president of the OBTC? Find out here.

I just recently read in the Union-Tribune Mayor Kevin is cutting way back on funds for city tree trimming. Have you considered this for Wed discussion?

I appreciate the Air Force much more since moving out of the apartment where a dozen of them took residence outside my bedroom window for 3-4 months a year.

Random aside – growing up in East County, we had a huge flock of wild parrots that took up residence for a few months a year on the eastern edge of the El Cajon valley. Has anyone ever dug through the urban-origin-myths or explored whether the two are related?
