Habitat Restoration at Cove Island in Stamford

Stamford wants to clean up and restore 10 acres of Cove Island Park to make it more attractive to birds, which tend to like the park anyway – 283 kinds of birds (not to mention 53 kinds of butterflies, which seems unbelieveable to me) have been identified at the park. The city is using a $492,000 state grant for the work, which it wants to finish before fall. Some neighbors though don’t love the plans. One thinks it’s too park-like; Jeff Cordulack, of the Environmental Council of Stamford, doesn’t like the wide, loop trail.

I suspect that these are quibbles and that the city and the residents will agree on a restoration that will make Cove Island a better place.
