Birds nesting in stadium stands halts CR deconstruction project


EUREKA- College of the Redwoods athletes will enjoy new tennis courts and a new track surface this fall. But the deconstruction of the Community Stadium stands is now at a standstill after discovering a small issue.

Fish and Wildlife has notified CR about swallows in the stands. The swallow’s nesting season will put a halt on deconstruction of the stadium stands.

A common phrase in CR athletics is that you’re not judged on the adversity you face. It’s how you face them, and the temporary halt is a small hurdle in the multi-year development plan.
