Re: SG-W:/ Tour de Wetlands



heads up!
having worked for 17 years across the street from the former wetlands
(Hubbard&Huron Pkway) and pfizer's re-do, i can vouch for the fact that
that parke-davis/pfizer's work was destructive and hardly restored the
water space.  shame on them!  migratory water fowl and other fauna and
flora have suffered as a result.  shame too on ann arbor granting tax
breaks to such environmental scofflaws!
