California spends nearly a quarter million to move a grocery store shrub
Stop me if you heard this one before. How did the shrub cross the road? By calling CalTrans, US Fish & Wildlife, California Department of Fish & Game, the Wild Equity Institute, the Center for Bilogical Diversity, the California Native Plant Society, and spending $205,000 tax dollars.
When the Endangered Species Act meets big government, bad things happen. Maybe Caltrans didn’t know you could get the shrub at this local nursery for $15.98?
