We are meeting at Moody Ave. playground to plant milkweed seeds and if members bring a packet of seeds each then we will divide them amongst the group to plant at home. The kids can also play on the playground afterwards. Hopefully we can recruit some new members during this meeting as well.

Our actions include: Asking our neighbors, asking schoolmates, asking friends, and asking family to consider donating funds to support our cause. 1. Collect donations and share information about the support given to marine mammals at our local Pacific Marine Mammal Center. (It cost at least $2,000 to take feed, take care of, and heal one sea lion/seal.) 2. Give ideas on how to create less trash and recycle more, so the ocean is a safer place.
We would hope the schools can share their experiences about swift migration, where the birds spend their time when away from their country, why swifts are threatened, what we can do to help swifts and anything else that is fun and educational! Please contact Daniele on dmuir 'at' taysideswifts.co.uk (no spaces in the address and use @ rather than 'at') if you are interested in setting up a Twinning partnership.
