 'Isolated' Wetlands

"Myth Busting Misconceptions about 'Isolated' Wetlands"

Location:   Wauwatosa Public Library, 76th St. and North Ave., Firefly Room, first floor 

Presenter: Tracy Hames, Executive Director, Wisconsin Wetlands Association

Wetlands are crucial to the health of our land, water, wildlife, and communities.  In this presentation, Tracy Hames, Executive Director of Wisconsin Wetlands Association, will discuss “isolated” wetlands. Isolated wetlands, also known as “non-federal” wetlands, make up 20% of the remaining wetlands in Wisconsin. This discussion will cover what they are, where they are, why they’re important, and how we can protect and care for them. A history of how Wisconsin has addressed the protection of isolated wetlands will also be included.
