Earth Day Effort To "Save The Wetlands"

Earth Day Effort To "Save The Wetlands"

By Aaron Zeidman

Members of "The Residents Against Bridge Creek Development" celebrated "Earth Day," Sunday, April 22 by making a positive impact on their neighborhood and their environment.

The group cleaned up Parks Department land from Beach 4 to Beach 5 Street and along the water’s edge of the creek. They filled about fifty garbage bags with collected garbage.

This land is listed in the State’s Open Space Conservation Plan, and determined by the Final Environmental Impact Statement to be a protected area.

According to group member Tracy Conroy, the group could just as easily be called "Save the Wetlands." The residents are deeply concerned with the environmental problems affecting their neighborhood, the protected land, and the creek.

"The Residents Against Bridge Creek Development" have been engaged in a long struggle to prevent a developer from building a high rise in their backyard. Their next meeting will be held on Sunday, April 29 at 2:00 in St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Rectory Basement. The public is encouraged to attend.
