Incredible Wetlands!

This week we had the opportunity to visit two different wetlands. These wetlands were built within the last two years and are already showing some of the beauty and biodiversity that we would hope to find at a wetland. They have also been strategically situated for the maximum water quality benefits.

The first photographs were taken in Spring 2013 and the second photographs were taken June 2014. Photographs are by Matt Helmers.

For more information about wetlands and their importance in our ecosystems, check out our award-winning documentary: Incredible Wetlands.
