Save Wildlife Habitat along the Milwaukee River
Milwaukee River Petition: Halt Trail Cutting through Wildlife Habitat and Repair the Main Trail
We support Milwaukee River Advocates’ efforts to halt any new trail cutting in wildlife habitat on the west bank of the Milwaukee River from Locust St. to Capitol Dr. We also strongly support allowing MRA, with the sanction of the Parks Dept, to maintain the main trail so it's sustainable.
This is a fragile Primary Environmental Corridor. Cutting new trails divides and destroys undisturbed habitat for native wildlife. This is also a migratory corridor, and home of wild and endangered plants and animals.
We ask the County Parks Dept. to end plans to cut new trails which would increase environmental degradation of this fragile and largely well preserved, natural area.
