"It is the largest occurrence of this rare breed of plant, the Aliendonia Flexibolus is defined as 'alien in origin'" said Illava Plantus, lead Botanist at the Manitou Environmental Services. "We are not really sure how the plant got here but it does not appear to be growing beyond it's existing footprint" she said. The plant was identified as Aliendonia Flexibolus with no known origins on Manitou. It has been found in only two locations in the community but only one is now protected by law.
The council of the Municipality of Manitou granted powers to the Environmental Services department, earlier this month, to identify and protect "areas of environmental concern threatened by avatar developmental advancement" and to declare them "protected".
"The marshland existed before Midland was annexed by Manitou and by chance has not been negatively impacted by nearby development", Ms. Plantus told the Corran Journal. "We need to do everything we can to protect these areas and the rare flora and fauna found in Manitou".
City council has directed the economic planning department to create "public zones" in the form of a boardwalk or observation deck nearby the marshlands to allow for safe viewing without entering the protected area. The marshland backs on the Manitou Tourism office and a fence has been erected to protect the area.
Manitou offers the best Marketplace in the Great Canadian Grid. "There's no unmanageable time limits or random spots to place your booth" said Winter Silversmith. "We offer merchants a spot in our two marketplaces that they get to keep all week long and they don't have to move to another spot because someone took theirs". The Meaford region of Manitou currently has two market parks, North and South. Contact Winter Silversmith for details.
