View from the blog-o-sphereCelebrating Wisconsin’s Wetlands of International Importance

By Tracy Hames – Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin – October 6, 2015
As executive director for Wisconsin Wetlands Association, I have had the chance to visit hundreds of beautiful wetlands across our state. And while I love every Wisconsin wetland, it’s especially fun to visit rare wetland types like Chiwaukee Prairie along the Lake Michigan shore in southeast Wisconsin. Wisconsin Wetlands Association recognized this rare wetland as a Wetland Gem® in 2009, and just recently I joined more than 150 government officials and nonprofit conservation group members at an event celebrating its designation as a Wetland of International Importance. The designation makes Chiwaukee Prairie Illinois Beach Lake Plain the 39th designated Wetland of International Importance in the United States. For full blog post, click here.
