L.A.'s wild underbelly

Document Actions

By publishing such an indispensable, comprehensive account of an issue that has been all but forgotten by local news organizations, HCN has filled a critical role in keeping an accurate narrative of the sediment management issue in Los Angeles alive and well (HCN, 5/14/12, "Los Angeles Against the Mountains"). As Emily Green so eloquently explained, despite its hardened reputation, L.A. still has wild places worth fighting for. This overdeveloped, resource-hogging, behemoth of a metropolis has lessons to share and many to learn from its Western neighbors. Thank you to HCN for including us in the conversation, and to Emily Green for yet another compelling piece.
