Some members of the MOU Awards Committee have already discussed giving a 
certificate of recognition to the city of Herman for their cooperation, as 
Bob suggests. (We had recently done this for Janet Anderson and her Lewis's 
Woodpecker in Roosevelt.) Such recognition might also serve as a spark for 
other municipalities to be more welcoming to birders at their sewage ponds.
