How Wetlands Manage Water

Wild and Scenic Film Festival logo.Official selection of the 2020 Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

This animated white-board “explainer” video uses simple illustrations and clear language to outline how wetlands manage water and support watershed health. Wetlands in different parts of a watershed manage water in different ways, and collectively all of the wetlands in our watersheds reduce flood damages, help keep our waters clean, and ensure we have water to drink and use in our communities.
