trees growing in wetlands

NC Newsline – 2/13//24 – Gov. Roy Cooper yesterday issued Executive Order 305,  essentially  an environmental rebuttal to judicial and legislative actions that stripped protections from 2.5 million acres of wetlands in North Carolina.

From the article: “Governor Cooper’s conservation targets are laudable and far-sighted, and are critically needed in light of shortsighted actions by our state legislature and the U.S. Supreme Court,” said Erin Carey, interim state director of the N.C. Sierra Club Chapter, in a prepared statement. “The long-term preservation of our state’s wetlands is paramount. It’s not just environmentally essential to protect these areas, it’s economically savvy to allow nature to play its full role in protecting our communities.”
