For the Birds

We still get a little excited whenever we see a member of Detroit's burgeoning pheasant population and it sounds like the Detroit Reforesters are going to make it even easier for the little guys to prosper. The group has been redeveloping some of Detroit's vacant lots with indigenous plants and trees. With permission, of course. Reforester Jordan Sinclair, president and treasurer, tells Huffpost Detroit, "If we can create enough patches, we can repopulate [the city] with native birds and insects." The organization is looking to grow, having just achieved 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. [Huffpost Detroit]
