What do osprey and Puget Sound Energy have in common? The Whidbey Audubon Society invites the public to explore this question at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14. The osprey use power poles for nesting and PSE uses them for bringing electricity to residential homes and businesses on Whidbey Island.
Refreshments and socializing begin at 7 p.m. followed by a meeting at 7:15 p.m. and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.
Melvin Walters keeps everyone happy by coordinating the development and implementation of PSE’s Avian Protection Plan. He oversees continual improvement and maintenance of the program, responds to all avian power line incidents, prioritizing areas of concern and actions needed to prevent electrocutions and collisions and improve system reliability.
The free program is at the Unitarian Universalist meeting house at 20103 Highway 525 in Freeland.
