I hope you’re all staying healthy and safe during these challenging times. While we isolate in our homes, marsh marigolds are blooming, ducks and cranes are returning, sedges are emerging, and the familiar song of the red-winged blackbird can be heard across the state.
Stay connected with us. Though we’re all working from home, WWA staff and Board are staying connected through the wonders of modern technology. Please visit the staff page on our website for our e-mail addresses. We’d like to hear from you.
Stay connected with each other. We’re developing ways to keep everyone connected and communicating virtually. Stay tuned for fun and interesting content such as #WetlandWednesdays. We’re all going through this, so let’s help each other get through it together.
Stay connected with wetlands. One way I’ve been able to get through these times is by keeping my feet wet, safely visiting local wetlands while practicing social distancing. Visit our website to find a Wetland Gem® near you. And share a photo of your wetland visit on our Facebook Page.
We’re isolated, but we’re not slowing down. Rest assured, we’re continuing our important work caring for the wetlands of Wisconsin throughout this period of isolation, albeit in new ways. It’s amazing the amount of wetland work that can be accomplished from home. Take a look at our recent newsletter to see some exciting things happening at Wisconsin Wetlands Association. Keep an eye out for upcoming e-mail and social media postings for information about our current actions, how you can get involved, and ways we can all connect.
Thank you for your continued support. We understand that many of you are facing uncertain financial times right now. In light of this, we’re continuing the benefits of memberships for all of our current members, regardless of whether you’re able to renew your membership. If you receive an email renewal notice from us and you’re not in a position to give, let us know so that we can postpone further renewal reminders for you.
For those of you in a position to provide support, thank you. Your support is needed now more than ever so that we can continue our work for wetlands during these difficult and uncertain times. Easy ways to give:
- Give online to renew your membership or give an extra donation. You will automatically receive a receipt for your gift by email.
- Become a Wetland Gem® by giving every month. By giving monthly, you assure a sustainable, reliable source of funding for our work, all the more important during this uncertain period. And giving monthly spreads out your support, making your gift easier on your budget.
Thank you again! You give me hope that we’ll all get through this together, connected by our love for the wonders and beauty of the wetlands of Wisconsin.
