This was once a dairy…
An inconspicuous sign just off Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Inverness tells a wonderful tale of recovery. Today, a living, breathing, wetland filled with native plants and animals provides beauty, health, and even recreation for humans where once there stood a massive dairy ranch. Cut off from the natural ebb and flow, plants and animals disappeared. The soil became heavily polluted from sedimentation, manure, and other factors. The purchase of this land and the massive restoration effort that followed is a feel good story that puts a smile on almost anyone's face.
Today the park service is dedicated to destruction in the name of profit for a few rather than recovery for the benefit of us all.
I wonder if that sign on the side of the road will disappear now. It is evidence that today's park service contradicts itself.
