Oso, Washington[edit]

Hello Wsiegmund,

Oso, Washington's landslide section certainly needed paring, but it appears that there is a hill somewhere there called 'Skaglund'. See Skaglund Hill - Permanent Slide Repair about a Washington State Department of Transportation landslide mitigation project there, Completed November 2012. Recent news report mentioning same [1] And this source mentions it, [2], but as you noted it is also not clearly stated that the slide was on or came from that hill. It may be known by that name locally as apparently the Skaglund family were early settlers there, and still live on that hill.
Hope this is of interest. 220 of Borg 23:46, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

The WaDOT map indicates a location between Oso and Steelhead Drive. I've seen road work on that section in the past. From that hill, one can see the slide area as indicated in the Everett Herald article. The Seattle Times article says, the "Skaglund Hill Permanent Slide Repair [is] an area just west of Saturday’s slide, on the opposite side of the Stillaguamish River." But, I wasn't able find sources that called it the "Skaglund Hill mudslide" or that indicated that the slide occurred on Skaglund Hill. So, I removed that content. I think the slide may be described as 0.5 miles northeast of Skaglund Hill. Since Google and Acme Mapper do not show Skaglund Hill, that information may not be very helpful to our readers.,-121.84527&z=14 Thank you for the sources and comments.

Question regarding attribution[edit]

Hello mr. Siegmund,

Your photos are beautiful!

I'm a 6th grade teacher in Portland, OR. My teaching partner and I are working with our students to create a trail guide for the Tillamook Forest Center showing common species found around the center. We would like to use some of your photos. We are new to this process and want to make sure we attribute your work correctly. The guide will be used by other students and visitors to the center. How should we word the attribution of your work?

Thank you for your time!

Fossil Lake (Oregon)[edit]

  • Thanks for reviewing DYK nomination. Don't want to muddy the water now that review is done; however, here’s second source for "23 mammal species" fact. It's Fossil Lake article published by American Museum of Natural History in New York (see bottom of page 3 for "23 mammal species" statement; pp. 4-5 list the 23 species; then pp. 5-19 discusses each species individually). Sorry I didn't find this article sooner. It would have made review easier.--Orygun (talk) 20:19, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
    • That source satisfies my reading of WP:RS. It was published in 1931. A contemporary assessment may list more species. Thank you for tracking it down. Fossil Lake (Oregon) is an interesting article about a fascinating place and it is in my region. By the way, I contacted Museum of Geology and Paleontology Research Laboratory, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, but haven't learned anything helpful so far.
