In Wisconsin, we owe much of our modern landscape of wetlands, ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers to the last ice age when a vast ice sheet reshaped the land, and ultimately reorganized surface and groundwater systems.
When we remove or damage wetlands, the loss of those wetland services contributes to many of the state’s most dangerous and expensive water management problems.
The Lower Wisconsin Riverway joins five other sites in Wisconsin recognized as a Wetland of International Importance by the United States and the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
