World Wetlands Day

February 2, 2017

Happy World Wetlands Day!

Wetlands help clean our water, reduce flooding, are home to tons of species and so much more! In Illinois, we’ve lost more than 90% of our wetlands that existed 200 years ago. Take this day to learn a bit more about how valuable wetlands are to us and the environment and how you can help protect them. DuPage County has information on wetlands and one-page guide on wetlands and streams for residents.  You can find out more about why wetlands are important from the US EPA.
