Speaker: Katie Beilfuss

Wetlands are important for lakes for many reasons, including helping keep them clean. Wisconsin has lost half of our wetlands in the past 200 years, and those that remain are more important than ever. Learn about two programs that recognize some of Wisconsin's high quality wetlands that have received statewide and international recognition for their importance. Find out what it means for a wetland to be a "Wetland GemĀ®" or a "Ramsar site" and where you can find these incredible wetlands here in Wisconsin.
