Ambivalence Greets Wetlands Project

The Fairfax County Park Authority is getting set to build a new $2 million earthen dam to protect the wetlands at Huntley Meadows Park. Some are happy that an effort to preserve the ecosystem is in the works, but others think that this specific plan might not be the right one. Today's Fairfax Extra has the story.
