Wetland videos promote benefits of wetlands

Wisconsin Wetlands Association has produced a series of short videos to promote the many benefits wetlands provide to Wisconsin communities and to encourage and inspire more community-based wetland conservation work. We hope these videos will inspire you to speak up for wetlands and we encourage you to use the videos when you are talking with others about wetlands. All of the videos have available closed captioning in both English and Spanish.

About wetlands

Wetlands: Vital Solutions

This light-hearted documentary-style video features wetland conservation professionals explaining what wetlands are, why they matter, and how you can help protect them.

How Wetlands Manage Water

This white-board “explainer” video uses simple illustrations and language to outline how wetlands manage water and support watershed health.

Communities care for wetlands

Communities Care for Wetlands: Stone Lake

Citizens in the small town of Stone Lake in Washburn County came together to protect wetlands for the health of their lake, and, at the same time, created a treasured community resource.

Communities Care for Wetlands: La Crosse

The La Crosse River Marsh is right in the middle of the city. It not only reduces flooding, cleans water, and provides wildlife habitat, it also bolsters the city’s economy and quality of life.
