World Wetlands Day

February 2, 2017

word-wetlands-day
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.
