I just came back from walking my dogs and found that five plus feet on each side of [local road] in [local town] had been mowed.  I don't know which governmental agency is responsible, the County or the Town, but I am beyond furious.  The growth along the roadway was not an impediment to traffic or to visibility it was however habitat to pollinators, filled with butterflies and bees to name but two, who foraged there.  What was destroyed was nearly two miles of habitat.  Now, it and they are gone.  For what reason? When will we stop being so focused on what gives us a sense of satisfaction, our need for making things "neat and tidy" in the landscape, that we destroy others in the process?  When will we stop going our merry way without any thought to our impact on other lives?
