Wetlands provide many benefits to Wisconsin communities. Check out the videos below to hear about some of these benefits and about some of the people and communities caring for wetlands in Wisconsin.
We hope these videos will inspire you to speak up for wetlands and we encourage you to use the videos when you are talking with others about wetlands. All of the videos can be downloaded for your use in any wetland-related outreach you may do, whether you’re working as part of a group or meeting with your elected officials and community leaders. All of the videos have available closed captioning in both English and Spanish.
