American Wetlands Month




May is American Wetlands Month, a time when EPA and our partners in federal, state, tribal, local, non-profit, and private sector organizations celebrate the vital importance of wetlands to the Nation's ecological, economic, and social health. It is also a great opportunity to discover and teach others about the important role that wetlands play in our environment and the significant benefits they provide - improved water-quality, increased water storage and supply, reduced flood and storm surge risk, and critical habitat for plants, fish, and wildlife. EPA and a host of other public and private partners are planning a number of events as part of this year's celebration.
