Team LCAS Goose Rescue

During the Migratory Bird Day morning event, three of our volunteers rescued a Canada Goose from fishing line tangled around its leg and foot.

Rachael noticed it and sat with the bird, feeding and talking to it.

LaRue got a blanket and Kyle used it to catch the goose. He then used his Leatherman tool to cut off all the fishing line. The goose was released, fluffed it’s feathers and continued to graze nearby, free of its shackles and unharmed.

Thanks to Rachael, Kyle and LaRue for the extra effort in helping this goose!

Bike Path Cleanup Coordinator

Help us coordinate the twice-yearly cleanup of our stretch of the West Eugene bike path. LCAS adopted the west end (about five miles) of West Eugene’s Fern Ridge Bike Path. The goal is to help keep Eugene’s waterways an inviting habitat for wildlife and a safe and clean area for recreation. The coordinator will pick the dates and organize the day’s activities.

Thank you to Sara Lee Higgins, LCAS Webmaster!

Sara Lee Higgins has served as LCAS webmaster since April 2013. She brought our new webpage from a basic shell into a fully functional web presence, made online donations and membership payments possible, built in new features to provide easier access to information, and created visual improvements.

In short, she is a most excellent webmaster!

Thank you to Joyce Trawle, Audubon Adventures Coordinator!
