With permission, I am reproducing photographs of the South Bay that were part of the presentation at yesterday's LWRP information session. They show the South Bay as it is today and reveal it as a place worth caring about.
Also part of the presentation was a video about the restoration of Gooseneck Cove in Rhode Island. Although Gooseneck Cove is a saltwater marsh and the South Bay a freshwater wetland, the similarities are clear. A memorable and important quote from the video: "Restoring marshes is more important now than ever before."
