Reports 348 and 349, Nice Reaction

Reports 348, July 2, 2007, and 349, July 3, 2007, from the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese - Nice Reaction.

Bob La Trémouille reports:

Marilyn conducted visibilities at the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese on Monday and Tuesday, July 2, 2007 and July 3, 2007. I joined her on July 3.

Both visibilities were in the evening rush hour. I was very pleased with what I saw.

Traffic, both auto, pedestrian and bicycle was heavy, including traffic to an evening Red Sox game.

Marilyn had a new sign from past years. She stood on the sidewalk near the entrance to the Goose Meadow. I worked without a sign from the traffic island in the middle of the intersection. Marilyn also had an information board with photos. She had frequent extended discussions with passers by.

As in the past, we in no way interfered with traffic.

A number of people went out of their way to ask for materials. Clearly an excellent sign.

The reality is that people were quite shocked at the behavior of the state and of the nine Cambridge incumbent city councilors. People were clearly very responsive to our communications.

I have since dusted off and cleaned up the sign I first used in March 2000. It has had many refurbishments. It, however, still features, untouched, the excellent photo provided by Ann Lynch way back when.

It is now readily available for use and will be updated.
