The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is being asked to explain why the agency razed 43 acres of wildlife habitat in the Sepulveda Basin last December. Dedicated bird watchers were shocked shortly before last Christmas to witness the once lush greenery west of the 405 Freeway turned into a dull, tree-barren landscape.
