Good news on the environment in LA

From the LA Times, there are a couple of stories today about good news for the environment. First, there is a new park in downtown. That's great. Los Angeles, for all its reach and beaches and mountains and sunshine and dedicated environmentalists, actually suffers from a severe shortage of good parks. The national average for park space is six to 10 acres per 1,000 people. LA has 3.4. We haven't had our Frederick Law Olmstead. So this is inspiring. The article has lots of good stuff about kids being able to play outside.

The second article is about a restored wetlands that has become a habitat for lots of birds and fish. The Bolsa Chica wetlands are a great success story of environmentalism working.

Just wanted to share some good news about the environment on a Sunday morning.
