Good news today for the urban wilderness - Greenseams!
If you've never heard of Greenseams check it out on the MMSD website. Briefly, it's a program to help reduce flooding by protecting natural areas from being developed. For several years MMSD has been buying thousands of acres of land, mostly in the outlying areas of the Milwaukee watersheds in the MMSD service area.
It was in the news today because another property was purchased, this time along the Little Menomonee River in Mequon. Read the story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
