Review for Ocean River Institute Inc, Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I wrote a letter to the Boston Globe after reading ORI's report about that paper's nod to the plan to pave a section of the Chelsea Creek rather than reclaim it as viable salt marsh. I live on a coastal marsh near New Haven, CT which is able to co-exist with our big port city commerce, but it takes community push-back and vigilance to keep the balance steady. Water resources tie us all together. ORI's outreach via email was what alerted me to the Boston issue and it's grassroots communication like this that can help marshall the voices to oppose powers that would always prefer to "pave paradise".
