Saving County Grounds' Sanctuary Woods gets national notice

I post information from time to time about grassroots efforts to save remnant acres, such as the Monarch Butterfly Trail and Sanctuary Woods on the Milwaukee County Grounds - - public resources which have yet to fall to road-building and various projects green-lit by Milwaukee County, UW-M and other powerful institutions.

This local struggle is among several nationally noted by Landscape Architecture Magazine

Here's a good piece from Urban Milwaukee about the issues, and it includes another nice photo, like the one above, by Eddee Daniel.

So hat tip to the preservationists.

Boo to the polluters, privateers and spoilers of the public trust.
