Freshwater wetlands are ecosystems where the water table is at or near the surface for long enough periods of the year to support hydrophilic vegetation. Wetland vegetation often have unique adaptations for survival (carnivorous plants in bogs). Unique flora often brings unique fauna. Many of the nation's rarest species are found exclusively in wetlands. Wetlands are some of the last wild places in urban and suburban areas. These land parcels provide critical habitat for a resident and migratory organisms. Let's do our best to preserve these places!
