Feedback: Spartina war likely loser
July 3, 2008 · Updated 10:11 PM
It is amazing to me that humans cannot get enough of trying to control nature (Spartina wars, Whidbey News-Times, Aug. 11).
Nature is a fluid thing, in a continuously changing state. I think it is laughable to think that by going down to the beach and digging up this spartina, it will go away. What about all the coastline that is not easily accessible? It will continue to spawn more spartina.
Where did it come from? More than likely from the very seabirds that may be affected by its growth in the mud flats. I hope the county is not spending our tax dollars trying to shovel a flood uphill with a Dixie cup.
