Army Corps of Engineers Demolishes Restored Habitat

Without explanation the Army Corps of Engineers destroyed an area of the Sepulveda Basin that had recently been restored through the efforts of volunteers and tax payer dollars. The Army Corps of Engineers claimed an environmental impact report on the effort was not necessary because it would not significantly disturb wildlife and habitat. In fact the area was home to many mammals, reptiles and 250 species of birds. The Army Corps removed almost all vegetation, decomposed granite trails, signs, stone structures and other improvements.  Local environmentalists are extremely angry and upset and angry.
