Wetlands are one of the most valuable and fragile components of a watershed, but for many years they were filled and drained for agriculture and development. Now we are learning that wetlands are crucial to the health of our waters and wildlife. Wetland restoration, the renewal of natural and historical wetlands that have been lost or degraded, is a growing activity. It can improve water quality and wildlife habitat across the nation.
