Phil Barber Reports:
Here’s two photos from a visit to Alewife Friday [12-23-17].
It looks like the poor, unenlightened souls in Arlington have allowed The Fearsome Phragmites to “invade” a wetland and turn it into a beautiful functioning ecosystem without all-wise humans correcting Nature’s errors!

Editor: The Alewife reservation is mostly located in a western extremity of Cambridge, MA. It is partially in the neighboring towns of Belmont and Arlington.
The portion of the Alewife reservation Phil is reporting on is located between the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Alewife Red Line Subway terminal in Cambridge, MA, USA and Massachusetts Route 2, the northern of two east west highways which connect eastern Massachusetts, essentially to the New York border.
A corner of the reservation near the Red Line Subway terminal is in the neighboring Town of Arlington.
Very close to here is the area which was converted from a private parking lot to part of nature as a result of the Sheila Cook zoning petition which I wrote.
