HELP SAVE THE WEDGEWOOD FOREST IN SHOREWOOD, MN
Citizens of Shorewood and Tonka Bay, MN are collecting signatures in support of saving this precious forest & it's habitat from demolition and extinction.
As part of a road improvement project (overturned in 2007), they are again proposing the destruction of this beloved 2-1/2 acre woods & replace with a storm water run-off catch basin. This will force the run-off of stormwater to this soon-to-be polluted catch basin, removing of approximately 200-400 mature forest trees, that currently do an excellent job of filtering and cleaning rainwater.
This will be disastrous for the nearby walking/biking trail, home owners, and the Tonka Bay Manitou Park & fields, possibly causing even more flooding.
There are no guarantees from the city that this will solve their run-off issues.
Please join with us to save this parcel of land, known in Hennepin County as PID#33-117-23-21-0042. WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION; https://preservethewoods.weebly.com/
