Letter to the Editor: Protect wildlifeBy: Dave Schwietert, of Cameron Park
The construction south of Highway 50 is coming close to where there are at least three Barn Owls are nesting.
Approximately halfway between Highway 50 and White Rock Road on the west side of Scott Road there is a mine shaft that goes down a considerable depth. It has wire fencing around it to keep cattle from falling in. The owls are nesting in this mine.
Before the bulldozers get to this area it would be good to protect them.
