To the editor:
I am traveling Outside, and I check the News-Miner website for news at home. I was shocked to see that the Alaska Bird Observatory is closing its doors.
The email address listed on their website is not working. I don’t understand how they can close their doors without running a publicity campaign about their plight. Very sad. They will be well missed.
If I had known they were near making the decision to close, I would have found a few hundred dollars to contribute. I’m sure many others would respond the same way. I know nothing about the process they went through to make this decision, but from afar it looks like they should have made more noise. Is it really too late?
