We need you to speak up for Mendocino County's Western Snowy Plovers. Tell the Board of Supervisors that you want the restoration to go ahead as planned.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the motion to appeal the Coastal Development Permit 12-2011 for the Ten Mile Dunes Restoration project.

I support the project as planned by California State Parks and permitted under the Mendocino County Local Coastal Program, and ask the Board of Supervisors to deny the request for appeal of that permit.

National Audubon Society has recognized Mendocino Coast as an Important Bird Area (IBA). The IBA Program is part of an international effort to designate and support conservation efforts at sites that provide significant breeding, wintering, or migratory habitats for specific species or concentrations of birds.

Removal of the remnant sections of road and non-native plants as planned in the project is of great importance for the species of migratory shorebirds that use that area, including federally threatened Western Snowy Plover (Charadrius nivosus) which currently winter on that beach and have nested in the past.

I support Mendocino Coast Audubon Society's position that this Preserve be restored to a natural state by removing the remnants of the old Haul Rd as well as the European Beach Grass, thus allowing natural processes to dictate the succession of the dunes.

I support the mission of the Coastal Commission to provide public access to California's beaches, and am confident that California State Parks will provide that access even with removal of the remnant sections of road in the plan.

Thank for your consideration of my comments.
