May is American Wetlands Month!

May is American Wetlands Month. Started in 1991, American Wetlands Month is an opportunity to celebrate the importance of wetlands, inform people about the values of wetlands, and inspire people to work throughout the year to protect, preserve, and expand wetlands. 

Is your conservation commission, city, or town doing something special in May for wetlands?

Want ideas? How about organizing a walking tour or bike tour of wetlands in your town where you can talk about wetlands, why they are special, and what protects them. How about a wetlands bird survey in May? Or a walk to look for wetland plant species? The opportunities to combine fun and information are numerous. Take some time to visit or help protect a wetland where you live, work, or play.
