Wetlands Resources Toolbox

Wetlands Resources Toolbox

The quality of water in the Great Lakes region, including lakes, streams, and drinking water, is dependent on the integrity of our wetland resources. The health of wetlands across the Great Lakes Basin is dependent on the ability of citizens, like you, working at the local level to communicate the value and importance of wetlands and to have the tools to work to protect them.

C.P.R. for Wetlands: Conserve, Protect, and Restore – Breathing new life into our sense of place – is a collection of wetland resources to help you with your local efforts.
