Tule vegetation infests Lower Owens River

Jul 25, 2011 12:29:44 AM- latimes.com
A collection of bulrushes, cattails and cane covers about 65% of the river, which was rehydrated in 2006. Although the river has water and wildlife once again, the tules block portions of the river and hinder recreational activities.
