ELLIOT KARLAN / FOR THE ARK
Strawberry Point Elementary School students Noah Kojim Quek and Sara Kojim help relocate plants on the wetlands that surround the campus to make room for a new bird blind. Noah, Sara and their fourth-grade peers have spent the past couple of weeks helping to build the blind out of willow branches; it will serve as a place for students to observe the animals without disturbing them during their lessons on the wetlands.

Strawberry Point Elementary School naturalist Kiea Wright noticed a common theme when she asked the school's fourth-graders to come up with project ideas for the wetlands that surround the campus and serve as an outdoor classroom for the kids.

"There was a lot of focus on protecting wildlife in the wetlands," says Wright, who heads the school's environmental education program.

As a result, those fourth-graders are working to make their presence on the site a little less intrusive for the animals that call the area home.

To pass and be officially formed at Town Council's Feb. 7 meeting, the proposed undergrounding district needed a simple majority of property owners, with votes weighted by parcel size: 54 owners representing about $5.5 million in assessments voted yes, while 47 owners representing about $4.9 million voted no.

_______

A $1.8 million renovation of Tiburon's McKegney Green playing field could begin as early as this spring, though the Tiburon Peninsula Soccer and Southern Marin Lacrosse clubs are still about $95,000 short of raising the $400,000 they've committed to the project.

The Tiburon Town Council voted unanimously Feb. 7 to authorize town staff to put the renovation project out to bid.

The plan is to reconstruct the 74,250-square-foot playing field at McKegney Green with a new sand base, grass surface and fresh-water irrigation system.
