| October 8, 2010 | To counter the multi-million dollar, mechanized/chemical attack planned for the exquisite Malibu Lagoon by out-of-touch California state officials, the Wetlands Defense Fund and Malibu residents have come up with a “kinder, gentler” plan. This one involves 7 steps to remove invasive non-native plants by hand with community volunteers, plant appropriate wetland plants in areas along shoreline and pathways, and use muscle power — not bulldozers and chemical herbicides — to improve water quality and maintain the current thriving ecosystem.
The state’s plan will kill or permanently displace all plants, birds, fish, and insect species now living harmoniously in the Malibu Lagoon. Their plan calls for ripping out the three charming bridges and central pathway system for a longer peripheral path far removed from most of the wildlife.
