Wetland & Upland Management: Success Stories & Case Studies
Wetlands provide food and shelter to a variety of species surrounding the watershed. These fragile ecosystems can easily be infested by non-native vegetation that out-competes the beneficial plants, leaving the ecosystem and wildlife at risk. Restoring and managing a wetland takes time, patience and the expertise of a wetland professional.
Below are case studies highlighting a few of our success stories involving wetland management projects.
