We are dedicated to the protection, restoration, and enjoyment of wetlands and associated ecosystems through science-based programs, education, and advocacy. We are a statewide non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Madison, Wisconsin.

We envision a state where wetlands are healthy and plentiful and support ecological and societal needs, and where citizens care for, appreciate, and interact with these natural resources.  Join us in making this vision a reality.

We are a non-partisan, science-based professional organization advocating for wetlands. These values guide our work:

  • Achieving solutions through thoughtful collaborations with partners and strong support of staff.
  • Inspiring others to enjoy, appreciate, and respect wetlands throughout the state.
  • Engaging communities to actively participate in activities that protect and preserve wetlands.
  • Committing to doing high-quality work and ensuring accountability through measurable goals and work products.

As the leader for wetlands in Wisconsin, WWA focuses on advancing wetland conservation. Our work prioritizes providing tools and expertise to help others protect, manage, and restore wetlands. We actively engage in opportunities to advance wetlands as solutions to critical water management concerns at a watershed scale in ways that can be adapted across Wisconsin and beyond.
