Cambridge Urban Wild Stripped of Vegetation

White Geese and other waterfowl retreat to sole remaining habitat.

This was the breeding ground and refuge for waterfowl, home to rabbits and bees, hunting ground for hawks, place for human physical and spiritual re-creation.

Not on the DCR's list of priorities.

The DCR here applies its scorched earth policy to the urban wild at the goose meadow. This clearance is unnecessary since equipment for the BU Bridge repair could be put under the Reid overpass and the stormwater system does not need to go through the goose meadow. It could connect directly to the abutting MWRA plant west of the bridge.

View to Reid Overpass, where staging could be put.
