Meandering with camera…
I loved it!
Beautiful film, Gunta…I like what they’re doing…it feels right on a cellular level…returning life to life….
Fascinating restoration..It’s great when nature acan re take over where it belongs!!
I’m glad I found a few minutes to watch this, Gunta. The work that these dedicated folk are engaged in is, so worthwhile. Kudos to them all. :),
I just hope that the politics doesn’t interfere with this.
What a great project! Yet another reason to love Oregon. 🙂
There are so many things I love about Oregon…. it’s the changes I see happening that worry me, though.
News like this gives me more faith in the human race – there are people who care.
Me, too. It’s the folks who want to prevent this sort of stuff that worry me.
What a neat project!!
I totally agree!
It is a fabulous project.
I totally agree Hope*…
What an incdible project! Have you seen any of the work going on? You are in such a wonderful position to watch and see nature take back what belongs.
I take the back road that follows along the river every so often. I think I need to time it with high tide one of these days. It’s hard to tell just yet from the road how much of the marshland has been reclaimed, but going along the river is where I’ve snapped some of my better bird shots. The Great Egret was just one I caught recently. I would sure love to see more birds returning to this area. Heaven knows they’ve been losing so much of their habitat. Sad to say, there is some rather loud opposition to this project. I haven’t dug very deep into all the politics of it, but I have a hard time seeing what the fuss is about.
Who is opposed to it? And for what reason?!
My impression is it’s some of the farmers on adjoining property. The only real claim I’ve seen from them is that it will reduce county property tax income and there are quite a few folks who object to the amount of land owned and administered by the government. One of our current Presidential Candidates wants to sell off some of our National Parks if he gets into office.
Suspect we know which one. Without some government intervention, we’d take this world to hell (even faster).
😉 Sadly this county has quite a few supporters of the one you’re suspecting. Sometimes it seems like about half the country is going to hell in a handbasket.
Mmm, excellent stuff! Thanks for posting Gunta. 🙂
If nothing else, it provides a bit of background for this area I visit and photograph so often… I love to see them doing this restoration. Of course there are some farmers or landowners attempting to obstruct the project, even though it doesn’t actually infringe on their land.
