RESTORE Council Staff Brave the Cold to visit the Bayou Bienvenue Wetland Triangle 21.11.2014 Main Feed - Environmental Defense
By Samantha Carter, Restore the Mississippi River Delta, National Wildlife Federation Wind.  Rain.  Record-setting lows.  None of that stopped community members and conservation groups from welcoming members of a federal restoration council to a potential project site in the Lower Ninth Ward last Thursday morning.  Members of the MRGO Must Go Coalition met with Executive Director Justin Ehrenwerth and Environmental Compliance Director John Ettinger of the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council at the Bayou Bienvenue Wetland Triangle platform in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward.  Joined by representatives from the US Army Corps of Engineers and the City of New Orleans Office of Coastal and Environmental Affairs, we had a robust discussion about the future of restoration in the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) ecosystem area. The platform at the end of Caffin Avenue overlooks a 400 acre “ghost” swamp, a remnant of a dense freshwater cypress tupelo forest that existed in the city boundaries until roughly ...

Louisville Swamp: The Carver State Park that might have been 19.11.2014 MinnPost
A drive down to the portions of Scott and Carver County along the Minnesota River Valley usually means, for the purposes of this column, some exploration of a grand, large-scale scheme that never quite came to fruition. I guess those mile-wide, glacier-hewn vistas of the river valley must activate people’s innate sense of wild ambition. In the past, we have explored the would-be boomtown of San Francisco and the might-have-been techno-utopia of Jonathan . Very close to both of these sites, on the Scott County side of the river, is the Louisville Swamp Unit of the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge , an area that might have become Carver State Park. It’s close in proximity and in spirit of ambition. This proposal here wasn’t quite on the same scale as Jonathan or San Francisco, but it’s an interesting consideration of how ideas of recreation, preservation and conservation change over time. In 1934, during the administration of Floyd B. Olson, the aging Theodore Wirth, architect of Minneapolis’ park ...

El Salvador Restores Biodiversity in the Face of Climate Change 15.11.2014 Truthout.com
Barra de Santiago, El Salvador - Carlos Menjívar has been ferrying people in his boat for 20 years in this fishing village in western El Salvador surrounded by ocean, mangroves and wetlands, which is suffering the effects of environmental degradation. Siltation in the main channel leading to the town has hurt his income, because the buildup of sediment has reduced the depth and sometimes it is so shallow that it is unnavigable. "This channel used to be deep, but it isn't anymore," Menjívar told Tierramérica, standing next to his boat, La Princesa, anchored at the town's jetty. "On the bottom is all the mud that comes from upstream, from the highlands...sometimes we can't even work." Barra de Santiago, a town of 3,000 located 98 km west of San Salvador, can be reached by dirt road. But some tourists prefer to get there by boat across the estuary, through the lush mangrove forest. Despite the natural beauty of the area, the mangroves run the risk of drying up along some stretches, because the siltation ...
