Default PG&E BANCRUPTCY PROTECTS WILDLIFE HABITAT

"A total of 140,000 acres of some of California's best wildlife habitat and fishing streams" will be "permanently protected as part of Pacific Gas and Electric Co.'s bankruptcy settlement," according to the Sacramento Bee, 7/7. The parcels, mostly in the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountains, will be preserved as wildlife habitat, open space and public recreation areas. Wetland meadows in northern California, east of Mountain Meadows Reservoir, with views of Mt. Lassen, will provide breeding grounds for sandhill cranes, nesting areas for endangered willow flycatchers and habitat for Sierra red foxes. Environmental groups "are hailing it as one of the state's biggest conservation deals in decades."
