Presentation

Wetlands, Watershed, and Cold Water Resources

March 16, 7:00 p.m., on Zoom

In this presentation by Tracy Hames, Executive Director of Wisconsin Wetlands Association, you’ll learn about what wetlands are and how they help manage the water that flows through our watersheds.  Historically viewed as wastelands, wetland loss was rampant in Wisconsin for many decades.  The legacy of wetland loss has contributed to many of our current natural resource and societal problems, such as increased flooding, decreased water quality, and accelerated loss of fish and wildlife habitat.  Hames will present wetlands from a new perspective, showing how we can use them as solutions to the water-related issues we face, especially flooding.
