VERY IMPRESSIVE and EASILY ACCESSIBLE WEB-SITE! K-State Research and Extension is just beginning a 5-year project for at-risk youth programming and organizational capacity-building. I've been interested in the Community Change (tool kit) concept as it relates to organizational change. Have organizations used your concepts for capacity building in "communities of association" (ie., organizations such as Extension)? Thanks!

Who I am Use of CTB
I am not a professional activist, I do not know where to channel my e-mails and was hopinng your organization and your contacts may help. I am specifically seeking those who may have contacts in southern california, particularly L.A county... It is with the utmost urgency that I write this letter, in hope that I can help prevent an ecological disaster in a city that has precious little nature left as it is. Let me briefly explain the situation and hope that this plea can be acted upon before irreversible damage is done to perhaps the most historic wetland in all of Los Angeles - the La Brea Tar Pits at the Page Museum. Please listen to my observation of the situation as time is of the utmost importance since more destruction is scheduled for next week! My name is John Greenlee. I am the owner and operator of the Greenlee Nursery, a supplier of native grasses and author of "The Encyclopedia of Ornamental Grasses", an authority on native grasses, sedges, and rushes. Because of my experience I was asked by the contractor, Valley Crest, to come to the site to save some native sedges, propagate and grow them so they might be replanted after landscape renovations to the museum grounds have been completed. Today, to my horror, as I went to the site to pick up these native sedges, I discovered that the original native reeds and rushes surrounding the historic Tar Pit ponds have been bulldozed out! Physically, mechanically removed. I was shocked and stunned by what I feel to be a gross mistake, one that may not be salvageable unless action is taken immediately to stop this destruction. Observing what I believe to be the systematic dismantling of one of the oldest and perhaps most historic wetlands in all of Los Angeles, I asked the contractors what was the reason for this action. I was told by the landscape foreman that the next step was going to be the sterilization of the pond by chemical treatment to remove all vestiges of the native plant materials and the spraying is to take place sometime next week! I believe we must act now to stop the spraying. There are some native rushes still left but these are slated to be killed by chemical application. Why is this happening? The architect's office, Fong and Associates, and the landscape contractors told me the county mosquito abatement district wants them removed to fight mosquitoes! This explanation is absurd and goes against all that I know about mosquito abatement. The presence of native rushes does not cause mosquito infestations. This is patently false. The prime breeding ground for mosquitoes is standing water in old tires, buckets, and anywhere water is left to collect in total absence of any vegetation. It is my understanding, and I have consulted with Neil Diboll, world renowned restoration ecologist, who supports my position that emergent aquatics, the term for the native rushes and tules, are essential habitat for insect predators. Predators, such as the dragon fly, are voracious consumers of mosquitoes. The city - in short - is being sold a bill of goods. Once again, someone mistakenly believes that taxpayer subsidized chemical applications is a better solution than a natural, balanced ecosystem. This belief is not only poorly conceived and without scientific substantiation, but there is far more to lose. What are we about to lose? Genetic material that has been on this very same site, since perhaps the days that those now extinct animals once trampled upon it to search for water - the native sedges and rushes. Once chemical sterilization is complete, this historic vegetation will cease to exist! Perhaps 45,000 years of ecology will cease to exist! Remnants of the rushes and sedges are still on the site. But, for how long? Dragon flys perch and molt on rushes and sedges. How does the county propose to replace the lost habitat? This grave mistake must be halted before any further damage occurs. We must act now, or we will lose this bit of remnant nature forever! If there is anything I can do please call me anytime day or night. office: (909) 629-9045 (leave a message and I will check in) pager: (888) 945-2362
