Did you know that wetlands once comprised a full third of Wisconsin’s land area, or 10 million acres? We’ve lost half of these wetlands to agricultural production and development, but even with that loss, 15% of Wisconsin’s land area is wetlands. Learn about the key role wetlands play in the natural water cycle in our watersheds and how protecting and caring for wetlands can improve water quality and reduce flood damages, among other benefits. Hear about how Wisconsin Wetlands Association works to help people and communities care for wetlands all across the state and how you can get involved with protecting wetlands in your community and around the state.
