2016-1-25 : Brainstorming how to locate the "Eye of the Storm" at Cattle Point Star Park and still solve the protection of the rare plants issue. The plan was for the welcome pole to be at B; and the Eye of the Storm to be at A. It might be better (to protect plants and vernal pools) to have the welcome pole Y; and the Eye of the Storm to be at X. This also helps have an area where crowds can gather on Summer Solstice. In Jan 2016, Area Y is eroding badly. We can strengthen the shore line and locate the Welcome Pole in the water in one go. Putting the Eye of the Storm in a small round-a-bout at X might manage the traffic flow better too, in the widest area of the parking lot. The alignment of both objects June 21, 2016, can be recalculated by our engineers.

2015-1-25 : The SUN at the Centre of the Solar System - reminds everyone how we are struggling to protect the super rare McCoun's Meadownfoam flowers and the Vernal Pools. It is hoped the new sculpture will focus the community on these issues of protecting the whole Salish Sea Bioregion. As Chris Paul reminds us, the Eye of the Storm represents the plight of the earth's oceans and especially the Salish Sea.
