Why is the City cutting up the wetland areas?

The goal is to remove nonnative species, such as Himalayan blackberry because that will increase the potential for improved habitat and eliminate some of the native planting from dying because they were choked out by the blackberries. The City is working hard on the riparian buffer area and existing wetland area to enhance this with additional plantings, which will help to increase native plant diversity and richness.
