Executive Director Tracy Hames reflects on how things change over time in the natural world, and how we can see our work to protect wetlands in a similar light.
New legislation will encourage more consideration of wetland solutions to problems like flooding, erosion, sedimentation, run-off, and water quality.
Among the programs funded by the state budget are several that directly or indirectly support investments in wetlands.
Continuing a strong Knowles Nelson Stewardship Program and increasing the Waterfowl Stamp fee are important wetland priorities up for consideration in the 2021-23 state budget.
We’ve identified several opportunities to include wetlands in this year’s state budget. We’re advocating for wetlands, and you can help!
