Restoration and Sequestration

JD Verde

International restoration efforts in the Gulf of California might help the Colorado River reach the sea again, and a Native American site in Georgia faces degradation because of Federal budget cuts.

The New York Times reports on an update to a US-Mexican treaty that will return water to the arid gulf.  The agreement is the most recent in a long line of restoration efforts.

Meanwhile in Georgia, grass and kudzu will likely go uncut (among other neglected projects) at the Ocmulgee National Monument, a park preserving ancient Native American earthworks that was once listed among the “10 Most Endangered National Parks,” because of staffing shortfalls created by the sequester according to a report from Georgia Public Broadcasting.
