NEW PUBLIC ART DONATION ACCEPTED BY CITY
Eleanor Stopps worked tirelessly for over 20 years to save Protection Island from the bulldozer and insure it as a nesting sanctuary for over 70% of the Puget Sound's seabirds. Birds nesting here undisturbed include Puffins, Rhinocerous Auklets and Pigeon Guillemots. To honor a Eleanor's persistence, wildlife illustrator and sculptor Tony Angell was commissioned and cast this pair of courting guillemots in bronze. Thanks to the generosity of our community, the sculpture will be installed this Spring or early Summer at a date to be announced. A bronze plaque will remind us all of the value of working to preserve the environment we cherish.
