After a long court battle that eventually shrunk the size of a solar energy plant in the Panoche Valley, a new protected habitat area has opened. The Panoche Valley Preserve is mitigation for a greatly reduced plant from what was initially proposed. Our friends at the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society helped make this happen, along with several other great groups. It's terrific that this great habitat will be preserved.
With sea levels expected to rise by two feet in the coming decades in Southern California, planners have devised a strategy to use wetlands and marshes to combat it.
