Geese die before city of Woodland puts out water trough


WOODLAND – City officials provided water for a small flock of geese fighting for survival in an old retention basin, but concerned community members said it may have been too late for several geese that died overnight.

The domestic geese live in the old retention basin along Interstate 5 north of Woodland, but years of drought have taken its toll. The retention is now dried out, with no water left for the geese and ducks that live there to drink.

Room Envy / The Bathing Sophisticate + 5 Things

Wow, what a summer it has been so far! I hope you all are enjoying this break from the school year and the warm weather is kind to you. Maybe you are even making the most of things and wandering with a carefree mind. Regardless, I hope you make amazing memories wherever you may go.

Stranded geese need water, new home.


ID=13461285WOODLAND - A small flock of domestic geese is fighting for survival in an old retention basin along Interstate 5 north of Woodland.

Three years of drought have left the geese clustered around a small bog of drying mud on the south side of the basin, put in when Interstate 5 was being built in the early 1970s.

"They're gonna be dead. It's what, 105 today?" Katrina Lane said as she watched 26 geese clustered around the pond on Thursday evening.

Child Support Workshops in August Part of Child Support Awareness Month

“Children are the best part of ourselves – the sum of our past and the promise of our future, the guarantee that our lives and values and dreams will flourish long after we are gone.”  With that statement, then President Bill Clinton made an official proclamation in 1995 that recognized the month of August as Child Support Awareness Month.

Child Support Awareness Month is a time to salute parents who work hard to ensure their children grow up in stable homes and look forward to a bright future.  It is also a time to help remind parents who are not always present that they are an important part of their children’s lives.
