In 1969, Wisconsin Wetlands Association (WWA) was born after concerned community members stood up for wetlands in the path of large development projects in Madison, WI.

As WWA expanded into a state-wide organization, its commitment to protecting wetlands remained. Thanks to passionate individuals, like you, the wetlands of Wisconsin have a longstanding champion: the Wisconsin Wetlands Association.

Reminisce with this timeline of WWA’s work over the past 50 years and watch our special 50th anniversary video below.

Thank you to all our members, leaders, and supporters, past and present for making the last 50 years possible. Here’s to another 50 years!
