This story was told to me years ago by an ODFW employee on Sauvie Is.
Portland Audubon campaigned for years to get ODFW to stop leasing land there to cattle grazers. Eventually Audubon succeeded, cows were removed, and the vegetation 'recovered' to say the least, at which point Audubon asked ODFW to mow trails for access by people. The response was that ODFW thought it was better to leave things 'natural'.
