Restoration as the Solution to Disappearing Wetlands

The column "Wading in the Wetlands Morass," Dec. 6, detailing two outstanding examples of cooperative wetlands restoration, was inspiring and much needed in this age of combativeness between industrialists and environmentalists.We can only hope it was read around the White House. Here in Murfreesboro, near Nashville, a much less publicized but nonetheless locally important wetlands preservation movement is afoot as well. A citizens' group has formed to save wetlands located in a fast developing residential neighborhood. With cooperation, much can be accomplished on all levels. Glenn Himebaugh, Murfreesboro, Tenn.
