This post by L.A. Creek Freak is the only new information I’ve been able to find online today. It mentions a protest in front of the Hall of Administration building downtown at 9 a.m. I am hoping for a big turnout!
This video of the area in question was recently posted on YouTube. It clearly shows the mature oak trees that are over 100 years old. A staffer in Mike Antonovich’s office talked to me on the phone at length today about how the woodlands would be “restored” by planting new trees (apparently on top of the dumped silt once the project is completed). But once you see this video, you can see how futile that idea is. Replacing these majestic mature trees with sapplings will never do the job to recreate what will have been lost.
