Treehugger Tuesday

A rare and unique urban nature habitat on the Brooklyn and Queens border in New York City is being threatened. The historic Ridgewood Reservoir is home to an amazing array of plants and animals and the community group Highland Park/Ridgewood Reservoir Alliance has been fighting for nearly 8 years to protect it. Check out this video:

An online petition to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has been set up at Change.org here. Please take a moment to sign it. For more information about the Ridgewood Reservoir and efforts to protect it, check out the blog Save Ridgewood Reservoir.
