Petition update

World Wetlands Day & Next Steps

Nina Osberg
Tacoma, WA, United States

Feb 2, 2020 — 

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for signing and sharing the petition! Tomorrow, February 2nd is World Wetlands Day and there's a variety of activities going on around the country and State. In Tacoma, you can sign up to Rock paint at the Tacoma Co-Op (see our Facebook page for more information). 

NEXT STEPS! How You Can Help!

What we need to do next is to flood the mail boxes of the people involved with this project! We urge you to do it "the old fashioned way" with letter, stamps and envelopes because they are harder to ignore than emails in an inbox. Just write one letter up on your computer and then change the name for each one...Easy Peasy! 

Suggestions: Write about what this land means to you personally. (We all have different reasons.) How long you have been coming there. Why you think it is important to save the woods and wetlands behind TCC. Be respectful, but do demand that Metro Parks Tacoma find another spot for these soccer fields! Write from your heart...and you can never go wrong!

Thank you in advance for writing!!!

Here is the revised mailing list - a couple of positions were changed since January for the Metro Parks Board. Also, do write the Project Manager for The Heidelberg Sports Village Complex:
